Representatives of five of the Christian Churches in St. Ives came together for the first time at a meeting on 7th June 1967, when a constitution was agreed with priorities to work together during Holy Week and at Christmas, were decided upon. An annual procession of witness on Good Friday through the town to a United Service, held outside the Free Church, was developed. This draws large numbers from the member Churches, giving credence to our common witness of God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ as Saviour.
Five decades later, Churches Together in St. Ives is a Committee with representation of clergy and laity from seven churches from Anglican, Assemblies of God, Methodist, New Frontiers International, Roman Catholic and United Reformed denominations. We are excited that in June 2017 we will be celebrating a Jubilee of 50 years of working together.
Over these years, Church members have together prayed, worshipped, discussed, evangelised, protested and also worked to assist the poor and disadvantaged through support of Christian Aid, Samaritan’s Purse shoeboxes and Fairtrade.
