A key way in which Partnership achieves its goals is by encouraging inter-church activities in local areas. These are usually led by a small local steering group. They know the needs of the Partnership and other churches in the area and who might be able to shape a programme of events.
Activities vary between areas, but may include training events and programmes, and informal networking events (for example, suppers) for church leaders and others, and short residential conferences. All these activities aim to network church leaders and others for mutual encouragement, and todevelop and train leaders and workers for our churches.
