Welcome to Churches Together in Devizes

Meet the churches of this Market town and find out about the things we do together. 

Who are we?

We are eight churches that make up this partnership, representing a broad range of worship across the town.  We have come together because we believe that Christ is not divided and the things that join us together in love are far stronger than anything that seeks to divide us. In January 2015 we adopted a new constitution, changing our name to more accurately reflect what we are.

Our Vision

We believe God is calling us to: -

  1. Grow more confident in talking about life and faith
  2. Champion the needs of the poor and the victims of injustice
  3. Support more activities that nurture children and young people
  4. Be good stewards of the natural environment

Please take a look at our vision and let us know what you think of our priorities and how we might further God's mission together.  click here 

You can read the 2015/16 Annual Report here and check our Constitution here.

 

We believe in prayer and meditation

"A day hemmed in prayer is less likely to unravel". We appreciate the guidance and strength that God provides when we spend time sitting with Him. It is good to pray one-to-one and  also good to pray in groups. There is also a weekly meditation group affiliated to the World Community for Christian Meditation. click here.

We come together

During the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity in January we have a special get together on the Sunday and midweek meetings in each others' churches.  

In Lent mixed groups benefit from following agreed courses of study and raise money for Christian Aid and CAFOD through Lent Lunches.

On Good Friday we come together at the Market Cross for an open air service and then follow three crosses to Roundway Hill in an act of corporate worship.

We share a Harvest Supper in the autumn and make a point of doing several other things through the year.
