Ecumenical get together in Yorkshire

THE first ever Ecumenical Assembly for all the churches in West Yorkshire is to take place at the Yorkshire Martyrs Collegiate School in Bradford on Saturday July 14.

Some 400 Christians from all over West Yorkshire are being called together by the leaders of the Anglican, Baptist, Methodist, Moravian, Catholic and and United Reformed churches, together with the local leader of the Salvation Army in Leeds. This initiative comes through the West Yorkshire Ecumenican Council, which was founded in 1986.

Every member church of the council is being asked to send a mixed delegation of both sexes and all ages and colours. The day is also open to all who wish to apply through local councils of churches, local ecumenical projects and those who are taking part in the 1990 National Lent Course, "Turning Points".

The aim of the day is to celebrate the unity in Christ of God's people in our service in God's world, in worship, and in discussion and sharing of the gifts and concerns, organisers said this week.

The keynote address will be given by a young church leader, the Revd Myra Blythe of the Baptist church.

Applications and further information regarding the Assembly from the West Yorkshire Ecumenical Officer, Dr Lewis Burton, 94 Sun Street, Haworth BD22 8AH.
