S8 Mission Partnership

Mission Partnerships can be defined as: two or more parishes or benefices, committed to sharing resources and ministers, in mission to a defined area.So, there is considerable flexibility in what a Mission Partnership might look like but the focus is on sharing resources and leadership to enable mission in the shared area.

Partnership working was a consistent feature of ministry in the New Testament church. Mission Partnerships are a way of enabling and encouraging collaboration between clergy and parishes in mission and ministry. Four churches in the S8 area of Sheffield have joined together in a new Mission Partnership to share resources and work more collaboratively. They are St Chads in Woodseats, St Peters in Greenhill, St James in Norton and St Pauls in Norton Lees.
