At the heart of Partnership is a desire 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 a regular magazine and occasional books.
Key in Partnership is local networking between church leaders and others who are active in church life. Networking generally takes place in local clusters. It is a key aim of the Regional Co-ordinators to bring local clusters into being, but the intention is that the clusters are led by local steering groups or individuals who know the needs in their areas and can shape the local programme of events.
Activities vary between areas, but may include training events and programmes, informal networking events (for example, suppers), and short residential conferences. The aim is to network church leaders and others to enable them to compare notes and stimulate each other, and provide local informal training and development for our churches.
