Churches Together in England (CTE) is delighted to announce the appointment of Shermara Fletcher to the role of Principal Officer for Pentecostal, Charismatic and Multi-cultural Relations, commencing in March 2021. Shermara will lead CTE’s work amongst Pentecostal and Charismatic churches, as well as facilitating CTE’s new Racial Justice Working Group.
A dynamic millennial leader
Shermara is a dynamic millennial Pentecostal leader with significant experience in community organising, ecumenical engagement, leadership development and public speaking.
With roots in the Church of God of Prophecy, Shermara joins CTE from her current role as Director of The William Seymour Project at Centre of Theology and Community, and co-founder of The Open Table homeless ministry at St George-in-the-East, Shadwell.
Shermara says: “I do not only believe that ecumenism is a good thing, but it has been interwoven throughout my life, from my younger days of inter tradition church services to teaching Pentecostal Spirituality and discipleship to different church traditions. I have also worked across different church traditions on social justice campaigns, including The Church of England, The Baptist Union, The Salvation Army, The Roman Catholic Church and Free Churches to name a few. I am looking forward to being involved in the ecumenical instrument of England and seeing the life and breadth of God’s Church working together towards the common good.”
