Partnership Meetings

Our Partnership Meetings are our main regular event for church leaders and others in ministry in the South West, and form the heartbeat of our Partnership.

Partnership Meetings take place quarterly in either Bristol or Bath, and involve a mixture of:

  • Teaching from invited speakers: considering key aspects of gospel ministry in a local church context, and how we can effectively partner together in those areas.
  • Partnership business: discussing the current and prospective work and events of the Gospel Partnership, so that we are shaping together the things we do to me effective and beneficial for our Partners.
  • Fellowship and prayer: supporting one other by providing a context for sharing the encouragements and discouragements of ministry and praying together for one another.

Church leaders from Partner churches, and Individual Partners are invited to bring along other members of their leadership or ministry teams, and those considering becoming Partners are welcome to join us for a few meetings to get a feel for what they are like.
