On Sunday 20 November after the service there will be a special General Meeting in the Centre Mounier, in the “salle” on the first floor. All those listed on the Electoral Roll of St. Alban’s are invited to attend and vote upon on a very important issue: to establish a shared ministry agreement between St. Alban’s Church and St. Pierre-le-Jeune Protestant Church in Strasbourg.
The Anglican and Protestant churches in France agreed in the Reuilly Accords to encourage the mutual recognition and shared ministries of our respective communities. As Anglicans we are committed to taking steps toward greater cooperation in as many areas of life and ministry as possible, to advance together to a more visible unity.
The idea of a shared ministry in Strasbourg has been under consideration for the past 5 years. Over the last 18 months St. Alban’s Church Council has discussed at length the possibility of of such a partnership, and there have been many meetings between the pastors and councils of both churches. It is now time to ask the members of St. Alban’s to give its informed consent to continuing the pursuit of this relationship.
