Churches Together in Cornwall Covenant 2024

CHURCHES TOGETHER IN CORNWALL

CHURCH LEADERS AND MEMBERS’ COVENANT

27TH JANUARY 2024

As Leaders and Members of Christian Churches, Groups and Communities in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly:

We give thanks to God for the way in which Christians from different traditions have grown together – through worshipping and serving, fellowship and learning, sharing both gifts and differences in love.

We give thanks for the role of Churches Together in Cornwall, and all of the Churches and Christians Together groups, as we grow positive relationships where unity can increase.

We lament that there are still issues which divide us and we repent that we damage the Body of Christ, weakening our witness to communities in Cornwall.

We rejoice in the diversity of our traditions that enrich us all, as we journey together.

We celebrate the heritage of Cornwall which we share in our holy places, our welcome to one and all, and renewed tradition of pilgrimage.

We commit to share our gifts freely, and value each other’s treasures, as we learn and grow in Christ. Together we will proclaim the Good News through evangelisation and mission as we seek to deepen local relationships.

We commit to working for God’s kingdom through better understanding and closer co-operation. Together we will serve the people of Cornwall through positive social action and work for climate justice, caring equally for our common home and those who experience disadvantage.

We re-dedicate ourselves and our churches to working towards the fullness of unity for which Christ prayed, through the power of the Holy Spirit and to the praise and glory of God.
