Partnership is deeply committed to working as closely as possible with other organisations which serve the same churches as ourselves. Key partner organisations are:
Church Support Network
The Church Support Network (CSN) links groups which serve God from within the worldwide Christian Brethren movement. In the UK, much innovative work is being done, and the movement continues to make significant contributions to evangelical life.
Church Growth Trust
Church Growth Trust helps independent churches to grow by holding and letting church buildings, helping with proposals for developing them, and supporting church planting. It provides related advice and information, and holds more than 100 church buildings. Its origins are in the United Kingdom Evangelization Trust, founded in 1906.

The Enable training network is an information hub
and forum for training involving several Christian
organisations and churches. We are seeking to support
