Our Constitution

Churches Together in Cumbria is a charity registered in England and Wales.

Our Constitution was adopted in 2011.

We aim

  • to seek a deepening of  communion with Christ and with one another in the Church, which is his body;
  • to fulfill our  mission to proclaim the Gospel by common witness and service in the world, to the glory of the one God: Creator, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • to celebrate the call to unity of Jesus that ‘all may be one’.


Celebrating Together

is the annual gathering or Forum of Churches Together in Cumbria to which all are invited.

This event is a celebration of all that we are and all that we do together.


The Way is the newspaper of the churches in Cumbria, which is issued three times each year. The Manifesto of The Way outlines the purpose and vision of the newspaper.
