There was an interesting meeting in South Belfast tonight at which representatives of the four main Christian churches in the city explored the topic ‘Is Christ Divided?’. It was held at the new Methodist centre on the Lisburn Road. It was part of the 4Corners Festival: Bringing Belfast Together.
The Church of Ireland Diocese of Connor website has the following details:-
In a special event as part of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, church leaders from four different traditions and four corners of Belfast will come together to tell their personal stories.
The theme for this year’s Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is the rhetorical question put by Paul to the church in Corinth: “Is Christ Divided?” and it is against the backdrop of this question that the church leaders will speak. The four are:
Bishop Harold Miller: Anglican Bishop of Down and Dromore (East Belfast resident)
Rev Dr Norman Hamilton: Former Moderator and Minister of Ballysillan Presbyterian (North Belfast)
Father Ciaran Dallat: Assistant Priest in St. Peter’s Catholic Cathedral (West Belfast)
Rev. Dr. Heather Morris: President of the Methodist Church in Ireland and Director of Ministry at Edgehill Theological College (South Belfast). Chaired by Professor John Brewer of Queen’s University, Belfast.
