CovenantThe Covenanting Churches
The congregations of 8 local churches have signed a declaration of unity. This is renewed annually at a special service.
"We, the ministers and people of Christ the King Aldersley, The Good Shepherd Castlecroft, St Columba's URC Finchfield, The Church At Perton, St Michael and All Angels Tettenhall, St Thomas of Canterbury Tettenhall, Christ Church Tettenhall Wood, The United Reformed Church Tettenhall Wood unite in proclaiming our faith in the one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We acknowledge that our divisions are damaging to all of us and hinder the work of Christ in the world: we repent together of all that is sinful in these divisions.
We give thanks for the fellowship and unity that have grown up among our communities. We rejoice in the rich variety of our Christian traditions and seek to share them with each other in so far as the official disciplines of each church will allow. We now commit ourselves to pray and work together for that unity to which we are called.
Therefore we covenant together to work for the realisation of the unity of Christ's people in our designated area. We are confident that coming together in a spirit of openness and generosity we will be led to the fullness of that unity which was Christ's prayer for his Church".
