Bridge Builders is delighted to announce that Archbishop Justin Welby has joined its Council of Reference. Expressing his support for Bridge Builders’ ministry the new Archbishop of Canterbury said:

“Bridge Builders has grown from its roots amongst the remarkable peacebuilding work of the Mennonites to be one of the premier services for faith-based conflict transformation and mitigation, especially at the level of local churches. It is a remarkable and effective organisation, whose training is exceptionally good, and intervention effective.”

Executive Director of Bridge Builders, Alastair McKay said:

“This is a huge encouragement for Bridge Builders as we seek to develop our service to the church in Britain. Archbishop Justin Welby’s support for Bridge Builders fits with his evident emphasis on the work of reconciliation, among other things seen in his appointment of a new Director for Reconciliation at Lambeth Palace. Bridge Builders provides valued training for leaders of our churches in how to make reconciliation a reality in church life.”
