Serving Together

Collaborative working

Christians sharing activities, committed to united outreach that demonstrates the love of Christ in local areas.

Churches Together Groups are an important part of our ecumenical gift to our communities, we encourage churches to connect with a local group - see the list below.


  • Each group is self-governing and has a history of its own, shaped by the place and people in the team.

  • Groups respond to local needs and mission opportunities - food banks, street pastors, night shelters, youth outreach and chaplaincy are examples of local collaboration.

  • There is a model constitution for groups available here but it can be tailored to suit your group.
