Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.

2 Corinthians 5: 17-20

To reconcile is to seek the healing of what’s been broken. We all experience brokenness in our families, churches, and communities in different ways: through disagreement, disconnection, violence, and conflict. But where there is conflict there is also opportunity to re-imagine a new way of life. When we can learn to move towards conflict, extend hospitality to those who have different beliefs or opinions, speak into societal divisions, and hold space for meaningful communication, true healing can take place. This is the ministry God has given us, spoken about in 2 Corinthians 5: a ministry of reconciling ourselves to Him, to one another, and to creation.

Our partnership is formed of five Christian reconciliation centres across the UK and Ireland who together form a ‘backbone’ of significant expertise:

  • St Michael’s House at Coventry Cathedral
  • Rose Castle Foundation in Cumbria
  • Corrymeela in Northern Ireland​
  • St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation and Peace in London
  • The Blackley Centre in Yorkshire

In collaboration with Lambeth Palace, Place for Hope, and Bridge Builders Ministries, we are inviting 20 Christian leaders to transform their churches into ‘reconciliation hubs’. We will do this by accompanying you on an experiential and dynamic learning journey across the UK over 6 months beginning in January 2019 until June 2019. For more information please visit our website: www.reconcilerstogether.co.uk or email rebecca.brierley@stethelburgas.org.uk.

We believe that God is calling all of us to be reconcilers together.
