to the Churches Together in Lichfield web site, which is a visible sign of the Churches' commitment as we seek to deepen our communion with Christ and with one another, and proclaim the Gospel together by common witness and service.
Our strength comes from people from different traditions and backgrounds, by exploring new ways to work and worship together.
Many churches, one purpose
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 we often need to work together, as well as co-ordinate the work we do separately. When we do, we 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.
