Churches Together In Chandlers Ford
Worship during Coronavirus
During the restrictions in place to stop the virus spreading, Churches in Chandlers Ford are united in prayer and are rising to challenge of finding new ways of being a Church Community. Some Churches have been able to reopen in a limited way. All are seeking to support those in need in their churches and in the community and encourage you to join from home in a variety of forms of shared worship.
Here are ways you can take part.

St Boniface and St Martin are now offering a variety of ways to take part in worship.
10am to noon Tuesdays St Boniface open for personal prayer - this is open to all, with stewards helping attendees.

Churches Together in Chandler's Ford (CTCF) is an ecumenical grouping of churches in the Chandler's Ford and Valley Park areas in the south of Hampshire. The purpose of this website is to introduce you to these churches and provide details of events that are being arranged by or in conjunction with CTCF.
Feel free to explore the website to find out about the churches in our area and to see what's going on.
Many Churches, one purpose*
There are many different Christian churches and denominations, but all have the same basic calling: to worship God, to share the good news about Jesus Christ and to work for the good of all people.
So they often need to work together - and to co-ordinate the work they each do separately. When they do, they are acting as "Churches Together".
But being Churches Together means more than that. It means commitment by each church and denomination to deepen its fellowship with the others, and - without losing what makes each interestingly different - to work with them towards a greater visible unity.
*Quote taken from the Churches Together in Britain and Ireland website
In the upper room on the night before the crucifixion, our Lord Jesus Christ prayed
"That all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me".
John chapter 17 verse 21.
We, the followers of our Lord Jesus Christ, are pledged to pray and to work to this end through the Churches Together in Chandler's Ford whose basis is:
"A fellowship of churches which confess the Lord Jesus Christ as God and Saviour according to the scriptures, and therefore seek to fulfil together their common calling to the glory of the one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit."
