UK Bossey Network
The UK Bossey Network consists of friends and alumni of the Ecumenical Institute of Bossey (Geneva) who support its work, encourage participation in Bossey and promote interest in the world-wide ecumenical movement.
The annual meeting provides a forum for participants to monitor and reflect upon ecumenical developments in the UK. as well as for planning events such as the recent consultation at Lambeth Palace.
Through the network we also organise short visits to Bossey for ordinands and trainee ministers from different denominations in the UK, so as to extend the Bossey experience to more people than can attend the Graduate School. A visit to Bossey for College and Course Principals and other theological educators is also being planned.
The Bossey Network is ‘located' within the CTBI. To join the network or for further information please contact either Peter Colwell , Bossey secretary and Deputy Secretary of CTBI or Roger Spiller , Chair.
The conference was set up by a small, enthusiastic group from the UK Bossey Network whose lives have been profoundly affected by contact with Bossey. The conference had two aims: to reflect upon and celebrate the unique and distinctive insights brought to the ecumenical debate through Bossey; and to provide a forum to discuss whether these insights can in any way be used by Christians in Britain to refresh and renew a vision of Christian unity.
