AdminHistoryMarjorie Milne was a campaigner for Christian Unity. In 1954 she initiated the "Three Hours of Silent Prayer" for Unity, which was gradually observed nationwide in Anglican cathedrals by supporters of the ecumenical movement. In 1963 a centre for silent prayer was established by her at Glastonbury from which she communicated with supporters about issues of Unity within the church. The Trinity Centre was opened to all who wished to enter into its way of life of prayer, silence, study and hospitality and was seen as a growing point where people of different spiritual backgrounds could learn to serve God together.
AcquisitionThe papers of Marjorie Milne were deposited with the Church of England Record Centre in 1987 by Brian Frost.
