We covenant together:

 To promote the visible unity and mission of the Church at every level of the Church life

 To encourage and enable Churches to make decisions together where possible

 To give expression to the common faith, baptism and devotion of Christians, as we seek to do everything together, except that which in conscience must be done separately

 And we invite our Churches to support us in this Covenant to which we now commit ourselves, in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
