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.
The partnership has a Facebook page which has details of partnership wide news and events, and can be found here;
