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.
Perspectives is a 70+-page magazine, appearing 3 times a year. Each issue is on a theme relevant to local church leadership and activity, and a resource for church leaders and training. The latest issue is Summer 2016 on Turning Churches Round. The Spring 2016 and earlier issues of Perspectives are available electronically on this website.
We give practical support to local churches, e.g., helping them find staff, providing consultancy on church strategy and issues, and advice on church governance and trust matters.
Local networking activities are key to the way we work. They aim to network and support local churches, their leaders, and others active in them.

These grow from a pre-school, mid-week clubs and the work of Youth and Community Pastor, James Bell. For some months we had been thinking and praying about the possibility of Messy Church. On April 9 we launched, following on from a holiday club which attracted over 50 children. We had little idea what to expect. In the event
