Churches Together in Milton Keynes

We are a network of Christian communities in Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas. We are working together to show God’s love to the Borough and City of Milton Keynes.

Our current priority is to build a strong network of committed member congregations.

We have a particular concern with Poverty, Climate Justice, Refugees, Racial Justice and Mental Health.

This evening was a powerful experience of Quaker practice, but also a challenge to Christians in Milton Keynes to embrace the urgency of the climate crisis and work together as stewards of God's creation.
