Partnership is a support network, to encourage and strengthen local churches. It does this particularly through networking and training leaders in local areas, providing practical support and advice to leaders, staff workers and churches, and producing publications.

Since 2 January 2013, the Charitable Incorporated Organisation has been available in England and Wales as a possible form of charity. Church Growth Trust and Partnership have produced a joint paper with Stewardship to explain them and help Partnership and other churches in using them.

Contact Partnership for advice on trust and church governance matters.




CSI/J W Laing Trust Survey of Churches

On behalf of a number of service groups, including Partnership, a survey of churches is underway. It appears that not all churches received the survey form when it was sent out in June 2013. A pdf. copy of the form can be printed out from here.

We encourage all Partnership churches to complete the survey form.
