The Methodist Church in Britain has launched a new web
resource offering information and guidance about how different

The web pages offer a variety of information, from a basic introduction to ecumenical work to more detailed practical guidance about how to get involved. It explores the practical elements of how churches work together in unity and offers some background information for those new to the issues.

This is about owning and developing the work that all churches do at local, national and international levels. We want to demystify ecumenism and encourage people to find out what's going from their locality to churches internationally and get involved.'
The pages also have links to resources and training courses for those wanting to explore possibilities further, as well as regional information for churches in England, Wales and Scotland.
