Churches Together in Glastonbury

Who are we

Churches together in Glastonbury (CtiG) is a group to which all Christian denominations are invited to work together for evangelism, outreach, sharing and fellowship. Our aim is to promote unity between Christians in fellowship, and to encourage understanding between all peoples.

The structure of CtiG is simple and flexible: it is modelled on that of Churches Together in England and Wales. Twice a year, all Christians in Glastonbury are invited to an Open Forum, at which they evaluate recent events and plan new ones.

Afterwards, an Enabling Group meets to devise ways of carrying out their plans, which are very varied.

CtiG looks for opportunities to worship, pray and study together without impacting on the ministry of the individual churches. Jesus Christ brought his ministry to the poor and we seek to continue this in our current time. The foodbank started through Churches Together and still has trustees reflecting the mix of Christian demonimations in the town. Christmas meals and simple meals are provided at various times with help and support from members of the various Churches.

Whilst the member Churches bring with them their own worship styles the commonly held beliefs tie them together strongly. Study groups are organised on an ecumenical basis during the reflective periods of Lent and Advent and are open to all.

In the summer, both Anglicans and Catholics organise a day-long pilgrimage, attended by people from near and far. Several churches host Services of Healing at regular intervals. Glastonbury is a town of many faiths: whether you are Christian or not, we hope you will find a warm welcome in our churches and at any of the events or activities.
