How is CTE governed?

Our trustees are drawn from across CTE’s Member Churches and oversee legal and governance issues, including the submission of CTE’s Annual Reports and Accounts to the Charity Commission. Trustees also monitor our strategic plan and uphold the values and reputation of the organisation.   

CTE’s Enabling Group brings together CTE’s Member Churches twice a year, alongside representatives from Intermediate Bodies and Bodies in Association (see the full list of representatives at the bottom of the page). The group has the task of nurturing ecumenism in England (encouraging churches to work together) and provides a space for churches to discuss issues of common concern. It also considers matters of CTE governance and is the place where the trustees of CTE report to Member Churches and are offered direction for the future. CTE’s formal AGM takes place during the autumn meeting of the Enabling Group.
