Cytûn - Churches Together in Wales 

Cytûn is the national body set up in 1990 by the churches following the 1987 Swanwick Declaration. 

It unites in pilgrimage those churches in Wales 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.

A list of the member churches, agencies, associations of churches, and ecumenical bodies is available here.

Free Churches Group (FCG)

Some of the churches in Wales are also members of the Free Churches Group. It seeks to express the unity in Christ that is shared by Free Churches in England and Wales by promoting fellowship, shared counsel and working together, where possible, to extend Christ's kingdom in every sphere of society. This is done whilst recognising that each Group Member remains at liberty to fulfil its own distinctive witness and mission.

There is a particular focus on chaplaincy work in Prisons, Healthcare and Education although much wider issues in these areas and other fields are considered.

A list of the member denominations is available here.
