Churches Together Groups

At local level, Churches come together in many ways, often as Churches Together Groups and sometimes more specifically in Local Ecumenical Partnerships.

Churches group together to strengthen their witness to the local community. Such groups are where most people express their ecumenical relationships. They should not be just another church organisation for those who 'are keen on that sort of thing.' The question is which decisions should the churches be making together instead of separately.

Many such groups are long-standing. Some have a Covenant relationship to which local church leaders commit themselves publicly. Some are very active in united prayer and worship and social action, while others might focus on the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity and/or Lenten study groups.

There are several Churches Together Groups across Devon (see the list below). By clicking on their names below you will be redirected to their websites where available. Please contact our CTD County Ecumenical Officer to get in touch with them
