Books and papers about LEPs 

Local Ecumenical Partnerships (LEPs) have been places of experiment: they are now formally recognised arrangements with agreed principles and patterns of management recognised by the partner Churches.

Please see the lists on the right and below for current literature and if in doubt, seek advice from Denominational or County Ecumenical Officers re current relevance. Material specific to particular categories of LEP can be found in the web pages for those LEPs.

Missing material (like the 0309 document) has been removed because it is no longer relevant.
