Churches Together in Monmouth is a forum for the churches within the town and the surrounding area. Our unity is in Christ and our churches represent the rich diversity of worship and understanding of the Gospel to be found within Monmouth and the surrounding area.
Churches Together arranges joint acts of worship and events throughout the year, beginning in January with the 'Week of Prayer for Christian Unity'. At Easter time we bring the Easter Story to year 6 children in Monmouth through the medium of drama and music the 'Easter Experience'. On Good Friday a 'Walk of Witness' and 'Open Air Service' is held by the Monnow Bridge. In the Summer in conjuction with the Monmouth Festival we hold our 'Carnival Service' including a guest band which is held at the Monmouth Festival Mainstage. We also have a presence at the 'Annual Monmouthshire Show' with our 'Churches Together Tea Tent', here show visitors can sit, relax, chat and enjoy our tea/coffee and cakes, also a craft area is provided for children. In October we have a 'Joint Service' with a guest speaker.
Along with our annual events we run quarterly, monthly and weekly events. The 'Constituency Prayer Breakfast' to pray for our AM, PM and Governments. 'Breathe' our Cafe Church style event held every 1st Wednesday of the month at Costa in Monmouth for coffee, chat, quiz, video or live music. 'Links' our joint youth club held in St Mary's Priory Rooms every Sunday evening during term time, also hold a 'Youth Service' once a term.
We have a new venture starting on 3 December 2016 - We are opening a new Market Stall held at Monmouth Town Market in Blestium Street.
Our aim is to encourage churches in Monmouth and the surrounding area not to do separately what can be best done together.
