on matters of faith, order and ethics; to pray together and learn to appreciate each other’s pattern
of prayer; to work together, sharing resources and presenting the Gospel in word and action;
(iii) seeking to help the churches to arrive at a common mind am that they might
become more fully united in faith, communion, pastoral care and mission;
(iv) acting as a body which enables the churches themselves to reach their
decisions in the context of common study, prayer and worship;
(v) enabling the churches to do together whatever we can;
