Britain Yearly Meeting and the ecumenical movement
Formal relationships and their constitutional foundations
Meeting for Sufferings appoints Britain Yearly Meeting’s representatives to CTBI and CTE Forum. The Quaker Committee for Christian & Interfaith Relations (9.13) appoints to CTE Enabling Group and other CTE bodies.
The committee has agreed in principle that Britain Yearly Meeting should be represented at CTBI as follows:
- at the Senior Representative Forum by the Recording Clerk (new window) or a Quaker member of staff delegated by her or him;
- at the biennial Summit of Church Leaders by one or two Friends appointed on the basis of their relevant experience on the nomination of Central Nominations Committee.
General Meeting for Scotland makes appointments to ACTS; the Meeting of Friends in Wales makes appointments to Cytûn.
Representatives report to the appointing body and the Quaker Committee for Christian & Interfaith Relations maintains contact with any reference group set up to support them.
