John Simmons on the Proposed Merger

Posted by John Simmons, 1 Mar 2018

John Simmons from Manchester Diocese talks about the proposed merger between Church Society, Reform, and the Fellowship of Word & Spirit.

I’m vicar of Christ Church in Chadderton which is in Manchester diocese.

We’ve been a clearly evangelical parish since the 19th century and yet we still feel very isolated up here in the north and even within our own diocese. And so it’s great to have the support of organisations like Church Society and Reform and Fellowship of Word and Spirit so that we can make a clear voice within our parish but also within our diocese for the gospel.

So I’m delighted that the 3 organisations are planning to merge because it means the voice will be that much clearer and the support that much stronger for us here where we are seeking to make the gospel known in a multi-faith, multi-cultural area.
