Churches Together in Reading unites in pilgrimage those churches and associated bodies in Reading which acknowledging God’s revelation in Christ, confess the Lord Jesus Christ as God and Saviour according to the Scriptures and in obedience to God’s will and in the power of the Holy Spirit commit themselves to seek a deepening of their communion with Christ and with one another in the Church which is his body and to fulfil their mission to proclaim the Gospel by common witness and service in the world to the glory of the one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The aims of Churches Together in Reading are:

  • To promote the fullness of unity in the Church
  • To co-ordinate the ecumenical work of Associated Bodies and of Local Geographical Areas or CT groups
  • To facilitate united worship witness and training suited to the needs and opportunities of changing circumstances
