The aims of Churches Together in Melbourne –

• To enable the churches, as pilgrims together, to develop growing relationships, to seek a common mind and to make decisions together
• To encourage churches to worship, pray and reflect together on the nature and purpose of the Church, in the light of its mission – each church sharing with others the treasures of its tradition
• To enable the churches to respond to the needs of society and to witness to the Gospel together
• To enable the churches to live and share the Gospel, to evangelise together and to take further steps towards fuller unity
