What are Ecumenical Officers?
|Each partner church of West Yorkshire Ecumenical Council has at least one Denominational Ecumenical Officer (DEO). They are all members of WYEC Council. Their job is to represent their own church on the Council and to represent WYEC and the wider Church within their own constituency.|
The Denominational Ecumenical Officers have a role as an ecumenical conscience, encouraging people within their own denominations to be outward- looking and to work with the other churches in their locality. The Denominational EOs also do a great deal of the nuts-and-bolts work of ecumenism, in particular helping with the smooth running of Local Ecumenical Partnerships (LEPs). Under-pinning all they do is their shared worship, friendship and regular meeting together.
