Local Ecumenical Partnerships & Covenants
Local Ecumenical Partnerships (LEPs) are covenanted relationships in which more than one denomination has come together in a local situation. They come in many shapes and sizes. Some are single, multi-denominational congregations; some retain separate denominational congregations, but work and worship closely together; some share buildings or other resources; some operate in non-parochial settings, such as chaplaincies.
CTL’s Sponsoring Body is responsible for offering support to LEPs, and for advising the parent denominations in their joint oversight of them.
If you’d like to know more about how LEPs work, or what might be possible in your own situation, please contact the Ecumenical Facilitator for Churches Together in Lancashire (firstname.lastname@example.org)
But Remember. . . as the agency that seeks to help the churches of the county work together at every level. CTL is not just for ecumenical enthusiasts, nor even just for CT groups and LEPs. We are here as a resource for ALL Lancashire’s churches, and we’d love to hear from you if we can support or resource you in any way.
