The churches and other Christian organisations in North Shields have signed a covenant to work together, as indeed they have done for many years.
Some of the things we do together include: joint services for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, Good Friday (with open air drama and procession), Christian Aid Week and Pentecost. We also produce a joint magazine four times a year, and cooperate with Christian Aid Week collections and support for Bible Society.
Churches Together meets three times a year as a forum, with representatives of all churches attending, in addition to monthly meetings of clergy in the town.
Churches Together in North Shields is part of the wider ecumenical family: North East Churches Acting Together, Churches Together in England, Churches Together in Britain & Ireland, the Conference of European Churches, and the World Council of Churches.
