For over 50 years, the National Workshop on Christian Unity has been
gathering each year at a different city throughout the United States to
bring together all those involved in the work of Christian Unity,
welcoming delegates of church judicatories and ecumenists from all
churches who share one faith, one baptism in Jesus Christ. We discover
that there is so much more that we share than the focus on differences
which has kept us separated far too long.
The National Workshop
on Christian Unity is the only national gathering of its kind in the
world, intending to equip those given the responsibility of seeking
unity with ongoing formation with excellent plenaries and seminars,
opportunities throughout the week to join together in prayer, and
provide a context for fellowship from which friendships can develop,
friendships that are the starting place and cornerstone of any work of
unity in the Body of Christ. In addition to the viagra jelly uk workshps will be the United Methodist Ecumenical and Interreligious Training (UMEIT). UMEIT is a networking opportunity for United Methodists to learn best practices from ecumenical leaders working across the church. Please choose the UMEIT network when registering for the National Workshop.
