Churches Together in Melbourne (formerly Melbourne Fellowship of Churches) was founded in the late 1970’s and the present constitution was adopted on the 11th October 2016. The basis for this constitution states:-

Churches Together in Melbourne unites in pilgrimage those churches in Melbourne which acknowledging God’s revelation in Christ, confess the Lord Jesus Christ as God and Saviour according to the Scriptures, and, in obedience to God’s will and in the power of the Holy Spirit commit themselves to:

• Seek a deepening of their communion with Christ and with one another in the Church which is His body; and
• To fulfil their mission to proclaim the Gospel by common witness and service in the world to the glory of the one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The Aims of Melbourne Churches Together shall be:

• 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
