Churches Together in Charlbury


Welcome to the community page for Churches Together in Charlbury

We aim to encourage shared worship and prayer, learning, service and evangelism, with each church sharing with others the treasures of its tradition.

Membership is open to any church in Charlbury whose parent body is a full member church of the body known as "Churches Together in England". You can visit our website at www.churchestogether.org/charlbury


Churches Together in England is the national body set up by the churches in 1990, and has partner bodies in Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Churches Together in Britain and Ireland is the successor body to the British Council of Churches, and co-ordinates the work of the four nations.

Churches Together in England is 'A visible sign of the Churches' commitment as they seek a deepening of their communion with Christ and with one another, and proclaim the Gospel together by common witness and service. Its strength comes from people from different traditions finding new ways to work and worship together'. You are welcome to join us on the journey.

There are five churches in Charlbury and all are represented on the Churches Together in Charlbury Committee which meets every two months to discuss and coordinate activities as well as to support each other. The Chairmanship rotates around the churches.
