He has special responsibility for the Cross-Denominational Mission, an organisation set up to promote co-operation and shared understanding among the various denominations of Christ's Church, and which has developed into an extensive online directory of useful resources, links and information. As such he is extremely active in ecumenical outreach, and is a popular visiting preacher in Southern England.
Bishop Adrian is also General Secretary of the Independent Catholic Churches Council, a gathering of independent catholic churches, some in intercommunion, some not, but all engaged in ecumenical outreach under the Bonn Agreement of 1931. Bishop Adrian is also a member of the United Free Catholic Bishops Conference and received the Order of Corporate Reunion.
He is privileged to lead and support clergy in their serving and takes an active interest in 'church for the unchurched', helping the needy and homeless as well as preaching the gospel.
