Churches Together in England


Churches Together in England

Churches Together in England (CTE) is an ecumenical organisation and the national instrument for the Christian church in England. It helps the different Churches to work together instead of separately so that they can be more effective and credible. It works through a network of Intermediate Bodies, each covering an English county or metropolitan area and Co-ordinating Groups which bring together the Churches' officers in various areas of work. Bodies in Association with Churches Together in England are Christian organisations which, by their nature, are ecumenical but which are self-governing. The Presidents of Churches Together in England are the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Archbishop of Westminster, the Free Churches' Moderator and a fourth President chosen from one of the other member Churches.

Local Churches Together organisations

There are numerous local Churches Together groups in England. One such examples is on the Isle of Sheppey, in Kent, which has a 'Churches Together in Sheppey' group where most of the denominations meet regularly and combine services. The ministers, priests, vicars, padres, etc. meet once a month to have a meal together, and the CTIS chooses a chairperson each year from the group's membership.

Churches Together in England is a member of The National Council for Voluntary Youth Services (NCVYS)[1] by virtue of its local organisations' role in local communities, helping the personal and social development of young people.
