Ecumenical Groups

English Martyrs Parish with its two centres of worship in Alvaston and Chellaston participates in two separate Ecumenical Groups: Alvaston Christians Together (ACT – and Churches Together in Chellaston(CTC).

Chellaston’s Christian communities came together in 1996 when they signed an Ecumenical Covenant. This was in part a response to the Swanick Declaration of 1987 when Cardinal Basil Hume urged all to move from “Co-operation to Commitment” as well as a desire to deepen the already strong bonds that existed between the Christian communities in Chellaston.
