Churches Together in Leyland
Churches Together in Leyland (CTL) is a local response to Jesus’ prayer for all his disciples – ‘That all may be one.”
Churches Together in Leyland aims to serve the local community
(a) to enable the churches, as pilgrims together, to explore the Christian faith together, to develop mutual relationships, to seek a common mind, and to make decisions together;
(b) to encourage churches to worship, pray and reflect together on the nature and purpose of the church in the light of its mission – each church sharing with others the treasures of its tradition;
(c) to enable the churches to live and share the Gospel, to evangelise together and to take further steps towards fuller unity;
(d) to enable the churches to respond to the needs of our multi cultural society.
(e) to publicise the work of Churches Together in Leyland and the groups which it supports.
We praise and thank you for all
you have given to us in your son Jesus.
We ask for your help in realising the
visions of Churches Together in Leyland.
May we be a Christian Community,
proclaiming and living the Good News.
May we grow in love and understanding
of one another.
May we find new ways together to touch
the hearts and minds of all in our town.
Renew us by your Holy Spirit as we commit
ourselves, our time and our talents to serve
you and our neighbour.
In the name of Christ. Amen
