About the Fellowship of St Ethelburga

Our centre has a remarkable story with a Christian heart, and we engage Christians to support the work of reconciliation and peace.

The Fellowship of St Ethelburga supports Christian seeking to contribute to reconciliation and peace.  We do this through:

  • Regular mutual prayer
  • A Fellowship gathering at St Ethelburga’s Centre on the first Thursday of the month where we share Eucharist with intercessions.
  • People of all faiths and none are welcome.
  • Inspiring and reflective discussions after the Eucharist are led by guest speakers on issues of peace, conflict, faith and reconciliation
  • Our theme for this year is Christian Peacemaking in the C21st.
  • We offer prayer for Mother Earth and the suffering in the more than human world
  • Together we reflect on: Where is God in all that is before us? How can we become agents of reconciliation and peace?

For Fellows who are not able to attend the monthly Eucharist and discussion, the Fellowship maintains and develops bonds of friendship and mutual support through:

  • A monthly newsletter with current issues of interest and concern
  • Sharing news of other organisations committed to reconciliation and peace
  • An annual gathering on St Ethelburga’s Day, 11th October

We welcome Christians of all denominations.  If you are interested in becoming involved with the Fellowship, would like to be added to our newsletter, have a request for intercession or simply have questions, please contact jane.morton@stethelburgas.org
