Welcome to Churches Together in Penzance Area (CTIPA)
Representatives from Christian Churches and Associations come together and plan joint ecumenical services, events and activities which recognise our Christian unity.
This coming and working together as Christians benefit all members of our local communities. CTIPA is a means of sharing each others Christian faith and mission through services, events and social activities. Our prayer is simple.
Who prayed that we might all be one,
We pray to you for the unity of Christians,
According to your will,
According to your means.
May your Spirit enable us
To experience the suffering caused by division,
To see our sin,
And to hope beyond all hope.
(A Chemin Neuf prayer)
