Thornton Cleveleys Council of Churches was founded in 1967. This grouping of twelve churches was unwieldy. A split took place in 1988 when the six churches in Thornton signed a covenant. Its terms are as follows:

We confess our common faith in God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, founded upon Holy Scripture and proclaimed in the historic creeds of the Church, Rejoice in the richness of the various traditions we have inherited and seek to understand, appreciate and share them more fully with one another, Recognise one another as members of the body of Christ, repenting of those divisions which have occurred in history and of our part in sustaining them, Commit ourselves under the guidance of the Holy Spirit to search for that fullness of communion that is in accordance with Christ's will; And therefore we covenant.
