Churches Together in England is the national body set up by the churches in 1990, and has partner bodies in Scotland, Wales and Ireland. At a national level Churches Together in England has 34 Member Churches or Councils of Churches and 27 Bodies in Association. Churches are also continuing to develop ecumenical commitment locally and at intermediate (county) level

Churches Together in Britain and Ireland
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.
So they often need to work together, as well as co-ordinate the work they each do separately. When they do, they are acting as Churches Together.
But being Churches Together means more than that. It means commitment by each church and denomination to deepen its fellowship with the others and, without losing what makes each interestingly different, to work with them towards a greater visible unity.

Action and Campaigning Bodies

Christian Aid is a Christian organisation that insists the world can and must be swiftly changed to one where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty.
We work globally for profound change that eradicates the causes of poverty, striving to achieve equality, dignity and freedom for all, regardless of faith or nationality. We are part of a wider movement for social justice.
We provide urgent, practical and effective assistance where need is great, tackling the effects of poverty as well as its root causes.

Greenbelt is an arts, faith and justice festival with a long and rich history. We’ll be 40 years old in 2013. That’s 40 consecutive festivals. Without a break.
The festival we put on is all-age and multi-disciplinary in its programming. Our roots in the Christian tradition, and our approach is inclusive and wide-reaching. Greenbelt is a festival like no other – both in terms of the breadth and depth of its content and also its vibe.
The thread that has run throughout our journey so far – that the arts, faith and justice make for a heady mix of creativity and challenge – is now leading Greenbelt into new collaborations and ventures that will happen year-round and all over.
