Edinburgh Churches Together (ECT) was formed over 25 years ago to reflect the work of Action of Churches Together in Scotland (ACTS) on a local level in Edinburgh.
Edinburgh Churches Together aims to:
*jointly address issues of concern and interest within our city and beyond
*support each other in times of challenge and celebration
*provide a meeting point between the Christian Church and the City
*encourage local congregations to work together
*share resources, ideas, insights and best practice
*create city scale projects and events as a witness to the presence of Christ in Edinburgh
ECT brings together Church of Scotland, Scottish Episcopal Church, the Catholic Church, the Methodist Church, the Salvation Army, Religious Society of Friends and the United Reformed Church. It enables different denominations to work together in areas of shared concern but still maintain their own identity. As well as encouraging churches to relate and communicate with one another, ECT also works with the City of Edinburgh Council and other bodies including the Edinburgh Interfaith Association.
