I spent some time yesterday with the Church Army Board who were meeting in Edinburgh. The picture is with Chief Executive, Mark Russell, and Chairman, Bishop Stephen Cottrell. Church Army are pioneering Centres of Mission across the British Isles – at present there are 29 of them including one at St Luke’s in Dundee. We are in discussion about another based in our Central Fife Group.
We talked about Scotland today and the Scottish Episcopal Church. I think that encounters of this kind are a recognition on our part that we need partnerships – we have limited resources and partners help to ‘lift us to the next level’ But this is also a sign that people and groups see us as viable partners – that we share long term aims and that we will deliver what we undertake.
