The Mission of the Ecclesiological Investigations Research Network
The mission statement of this new Network states that it seeks to serve as a hub for national and international collaboration in ecclesiology, drawing together other groups and networks, initiating research ventures and providing administrative support as well as acting as a funding magnet to support conversations, research and education in this field.
Hence the EI Network exists to promote collaborative ecclesiology.
The abiding ethos of the Network is that the church must be inclusive if it is to be relevant and if it is truly to fulfil its mission. Finally, the task of this international Network is to foster and facilitate open and pluralistic conversation and collaboration.
