Rev. Hugh Cross
We were very sad to learn of the death of Rev. Hugh Cross before Christmas. Hugh worked for the British Council of Churches before becoming the Moderator at the MK Christian Council, the forerunner of MK Mission Partnership. He received an MBE in recognition of his work on ecumenism.
Judy Rose worked with Hugh and writes: “He was a very gentle and loved leader, good at defusing tensions between denominations and making sure all were heard and understood. He held the respect and trust of the denominations and their leaders and thus enabled them to take risks and step out beyond their traditions whilst at the same time holding their own integrity.”
