More about Bodies in Association and the application process
CTE Bodies in Association:
are in association with Churches Together in England;
are interdenominational associations of Christians working together for a particular purpose;
accept the Basis and Aims of Churches Together in England;
meet together to share information and expertise;
are represented on the Enabling Group and have places at the Forum.
Visit this page for more information about Bodies in Association (BIAs) and the list of current BIAs.
In the first instance, an organisation wanting to become a Body in Association is invited to contact CTE's General Secretary who will, with colleagues, ascertain that they have a more-than-local presence, that they are open to Christians of all traditions, and that they operate ecumenically.
The application is then brought to CTE's Directors, who make a recommendation to the Enabling Group.
