In 2015 the North West Synod began discussions on new ways of churches working together.
The decision was made that the Churches would group together in Missional Partnerships.
This is an exciting new initiative to help the Churches strengthen friendship, share resources, and ultimately better show God’s love in the world.
Each Missional Partnership will be guided by a steering committee made up of representatives of the Churches in the Partnership.
They will served by a team of stipendiary Ministers, with help from Lay Preachers, non-stipendiary Ministers and church Elders.
The South Area will be made up of 3 Missional Partnerships
Our Partnership – South Manchester & Cheshire
Our partnership is made up of 16 congregations: Ashton-on-Mersey, Sale, Didsbury, Christ Church Burnage, Christ Church Parrs Wood, Heaton Moor, Reddish Christ Church, Edgeley, Gately, Cheadle Trinity, Altrincham, Dandelion Community, Heald Green, Cheadle Hulme, Bramhall, Wilmslow, and Macclesfield & Bollington.
The steering group has already begun meeting regularly, to discuss how our Partnership can be most effective for it’s members.
The Partnership will be served by a team of 4 ministers.
