Christians Committed Together

A wide range of organisations and networks draws Christians of all churches together around common causes, projects and interests. These are the 45 Bodies in Association with the Churches Together in England (CTE) and Churches Together in Britain and Ireland (CTBI), schools of ecumenical living and working.
They do not form part of the churches’ official structures but, as voluntary associations of Christ’s people or movements within the Church, their participation in the churches’ ecumenism and mission before the world is recognised and valued. They build relationships, increase ecumenical literacy and, with their rich range of resources, action, partnerships and focus, they serve the Church’s ever greater unity. With a perspective from outside the governance of the churches to which their members belong, and often from a point of direct engagement with the changing conditions and needs of wider society, their insight also offers a refreshing addition to the churches’ united working, creating new space for the Church’s voice to be heard in the public sphere.
They are active in many of the same fields as CTE and CTBI. With members and projects across the country, they can work with County and local Churches Together too:
  • Church Life, Mission and Christian Apologetics
  • Public Affairs
  • Justice and Peace
  • Environment and Sustainable Development
  • Children and Schools
