The Presidents of Churches Together in England

Churches Together in England is represented by Presidents from the major traditions of our Member Churches

There are six Presidents of Churches Together in England, who each sign a Covenant which describes their commitment to each other and to the churches in England.

CTE’s Presidents meet regularly and liaise on a wide variety of issues of common interest and concern. In the past, they have visited the Holy Land together. 

Their meetings are facilitated by Paul Goodliff, General Secretary of CTE.
