Churches Together, East Grinstead
JCC is a committed member of Churches Together East Grinstead. Our goal as CTEG is to serve God as individual churches within our own church traditions whilst maintaining the unity of the spirit in our relationships one with another. From this spirit of unity we seek to serve the town in practical ways with the love of Christ. Currently we work together in the provision of East Grinstead Foodbank and through the weekly ministry of Street Pastors who can be found on the streets of East Grinstead every Saturday. Each year we gather together on Shrove Tuesday and on Good Friday, when we worship together in the town centre. We also seek to work together in pastoral initiatives like CARE, CAP Money courses and Bereavement counselling. At the beginning of each year we meet to pray as part of the week of prayer for Christian unity.
We are the largest and oldest body representing the UK’s two million evangelical Christians. For more than 165 years, we have been bringing Christians together and helping them listen to, and be heard by, the government, media and society.
Unity is what drives us – but not just for unity’s sake. By bringing people together, we are following the John 17 mandate to show the immense love of God, who sent his Son for us. We believe the Church is the key to long-lasting change in our country – and that by working closely with our amazing members, we can transform our communities with the good news of Jesus.

We are part of Newfrontiers, which is a group of 1,000 churches in more than 70 nations in every continent. Find out more: www.newgroundchurches.org.
