Churches together in Britain and Ireland

Many Churches, One Purpose: Serving the churches of Britain and Ireland on the shared journey towards full visible unity in Christ.

There are many different Christian churches and denominations, but all have the same basic calling – to worship God, to share the good news about Jesus Christ and to work for the good of all people.  Churches Together in Britain and Ireland is the umbrella organisation helping to bring these Christian churches together under Christian unity.

Following the outcome of the Swanwick Declaration in 1987, the British Council of Churches emerged as the Council of Churches in Britain and Ireland, developing alongside ecumenical instruments – Action for Churches Together in Scotland, CYTÛN : Churches Together in Wales), Churches Together in England and the Irish Council of Churches – to help embrace other Christian churches in smaller communities.  The Council of Churches in Britain and Ireland subsequently became Churches Together in Britain and Ireland.
