Churches Together in Belper

The History of Churches Together in Britain                            

 In 1987, at a meeting in Swanwick, the churches present adopted a declaration on Christian unity. 'Churches Together' was the result of this process which replaced the British Council of Churches with bodies that included a broader spread of churches, especially the Roman Catholic Church. Churches Together places the emphasis upon the Churches in pilgrimage together towards full visible unity rather than ecumenical institutions acting and speaking on behalf of the church.

CHURCHES TOGETHER IN BELPER (CTIB) meet regularly to pray and to plan activities and strategies which demonstrate their united vision for mission in the town.

They worked alongside a community drama group to perform The Belper Passion on Good Friday 2013, 2014 and 2018 and The Resurrection in 2015. They have had stalls at the 'Christmas Lights Switch-on' evening and, with the enthusiastic co-operation of local shop managers, had two Christmas competitions during Advent.

Doves of Hope

The Doves are being made in several churches, so if you have not yet started, I hope you will join in. They are made as a simple bird shape in fabric/card or any other way you can think. They need a loop for hanging, and will have an attached message of Hope from CTIB- these will be distributed later. 

 Safety issues re distribution-

Completed doves with hanging loops and messages are to be kept in your home in a sealed bag or envelope for at least 72 hours before distribution. When you take them to trees or railings in the town please sanitise your hands first. (If people do not take them away, for their own concerns over safety, they can be left as a display of Hope for people to look at instead.) Distribution is likely to start as the dark nights begin to come.

Thank you for your help and support with this endeavour. Let's bring some Hope to those around us.
