Churches Together in England exists to support and encourage churches from a wide range of traditions to work together in unity. With churches drawn from the Anglican, Catholic, Pentecostal, Charismatic, Orthodox and Lutheran traditions, as well as Free Churches, Quakers and others, we unite one of the broadest range of churches in the whole of Europe.

Why is working in unity so important?
“Ecumenism is exciting. Ecumenism can take us out of our comfort zone and into a place where not only do we have to listen and share more, but we also have an amazing opportunity to reach out more with the Good news of Jesus.”
Yvonne Campbell, General Secretary of Congregational Federation (a CTE national Member Church)
“We all have something to offer, and as Christian denominations we are all in this together. We need to work together for the good of humanity – that’s our mission.”
Pentecostal Bishop Esme Beswick, a CTE President from 2002-2006, reflecting on unity in 2019.
“I am experiencing that our actions bear fruit when we are working together in a spirit of great love which enables the Holy Spirit to inspire us.”
Elisabeth Hachmoeller, Ecumenical Co-ordinator, Churches Together in the Merseyside Region (one of a network of County Ecumenical Officers across the country)
