Churches Together

Quick Reference

The Council of Churches for Britain and Ireland in 1990 succeeded the British Council of Churches, taking its present name in 1999. It embraces a wider spectrum of Christian traditions than the British Council of Churches did, and co-ordinates the work of the new national ecumenical bodies—Churches Together in England, ACTS (Action of Churches Together in Scotland), CYTUN (Churches Together in Wales)—and the Irish ecumenical bodies.

Subjects: Christianity.
