The Map shows the area of West Yorkshire, but WYCT extends a little further to take in Dioceses and Districts based in West Yorkshire but whose boundaries go beyond.
DENOMINATIONAL ECUMENICAL OFFICERS (“DEOs”).…represent their own church within WYCT and represent WYCT in this area.They encourage people within their own denominations to be outward- looking and to work with the other churches in their locality. The DEOs also do a great deal of the nuts-and-bolts work of ecumenism, helping too with the smooth running of Local Ecumenical Partnerships (LEPs). Underpinning all they do is their shared worship, friendship and regular meeting together. At present, these are the DEOs in WYCT:
ANGLICAN Revd Glenn Coggins, Diocese of Leeds (Convenor)
Revd Terry Hepworth, Yorkshire Baptist Association
Revd David Bulmer, Diocese of Leeds
Revd Mark Cheetham and
Revd Mike Jones Yorkshire West District
Revd Michael Newman
NEW TESTAMENT CHURCH OF GOD Revd Edward Sterling
UNITED REFORMED CHURCH
WESLEYAN HOLINESS CHURCH Pastor Gloria Hanley
These eleven churches together in West Yorkshire work for the unity for which Christ prayed.
