Network Norfolk and Churches Together in Norfolk and Waveney (NWCT) have launched a new online partnership which they hope will enhance church unity, a key aim of both organisations, across the region. The Network Norfolk team have been working with County Ecumenical Officer Dr Ian Watson to re-launch the nwct.org.uk website as the latest partner site within the long-established Norfolk Christian news website.
It joins websites from Celebrate Norfolk, Transforming Norwich, The Norfolk Christian Football League, Good News for Norwich & Norfolk and Norwich FGB among others as a Network Norfolk partner.
Network Norfolk editor Keith Morris has redesigned the NWCT site and the content has been provided by Ian and includes bi-monthly ecumenical updates, the background to NWCT, details on Local Ecumenical Partnerships and the seven denominations which make up NWCT.
Keith said: “It has been great working with Ian and the church leaders because Network Norfolk shares their goal of helping churches work together more closely to help build up the Kingdom of God across our region. Helping the entire Norfolk Christian community to communicate and connect is what we are all about.”
Ian said: “Since starting my role as County Ecumenical Officer in November, my priority for NWCT, which is an intermediate body of Churches Together in England (CTE), is to make more visible and available details of national, regional and local ecumenical activities. It is also to better align the message of Christian unity with other ecumenical projects and initiatives from across our area.”
“Partnering with the ecumenical website Network Norfolk, which I believe is the premier network for Christian news in Norfolk, offers the best opportunity to do so. It is mutually beneficial. For NWCT it gives us access to a much greater number of people to promote, encourage and support ecumenism. For Network Norfolk, it gives their subscribers and other partners more direct access to ecumenical information and support tools from NWCT and CTE . I am excited and looking forward to working together to support and encourage each other in serving the people of our great county.”
