Churches Together in Britain and Ireland

Churches Together in Britain and Ireland (CTBI) is an ecumenical organisation. The members include most of the major churches in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. CTBI is registered at Companies House with number 05661787. Its office is in Central London; As of 2015 the General Secretary was Canon Bob Fyffe (of the Scottish Episcopal Church).

It was formed on 1 September 1990, as the successor to the British Council of Churches, and was formerly known as the Council of Churches of Britain and Ireland.

Its stated aims are to "serve the churches of the four nations on their shared journey towards full visible unity in Christ" and works in areas of Faith and Order, Mission, Inter Faith, Church and Society, Racial Justice, International Affairs and International Students. It also produces material for the "Week of Prayer for Christian Unity" and "Racial Justice Sunday".

CTBI works closely with Action of Churches Together in Scotland, Churches Together in England, Cytûn (Churches Together in Wales), and the Irish Council of Churches. CTBI, unlike its predecessor the British Council of Churches, includes the Catholic Church as full members, and includes Ireland.[1]
