Churches Together in England is the national ecumenical instrument supporting and encouraging churches from a wide range of traditions to work together in unity.
Churches Together is a hierarchical grouping of many like minded churches sharing the same journey towards full visible unity in Christ.
With churches drawn from the Anglican, Catholic, Pentecostal, Charismatic, Orthodox and Lutheran traditions, as well as Free Churches, Quakers and others, we unite one of the broadest range of churches in the whole of Europe.
Our vision is to create the space in which fruitful collaboration and mutual understanding can grow, so that we as churches work more closely together in our great task of sharing in God’s mission and making the gospel of Christ known in our nation.
Our strapline is: One in Christ Jesus, engaged in God’s mission, empowered by the Spirit.
