St James and Emmanuel is renewing its mission partner links. If you are interested in becoming one of our mission partners for the next three years then please read on…
St James and Emmanuel gives 10% of its income away to ten mission partners. This amounts to something in the region of £25K a year. We refresh our partner organisations and individuals on a three-yearly basis. This enables us to bring new partners on board and re-evaluate which links have been working particularly well. 2019 is the year we select the ten partners for the period 2020-2023.
We don’t like to make the application process onerous for our partners and you can download a short application form at the end of this page.
There are two things you might like to know before applying to become a partner with us. Firstly, St James and Emmanuel is an unashamedly inclusive church. We do not require you to hold the same beliefs as us, but you need to understand that you are applying to a church that welcomes and accepts all without barriers. If this will compromise you or your other supporters then you need to give that consideration before applying. Secondly, we measure whether or not to support partners by evaluating them against the Church of England’s Five Marks of Mission, which are:
- To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom
- To teach, baptise and nurture new believers
- To respond to human need by loving service
- To seek to transform unjust structures of society
- To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the Earth
If you can demonstrate that your work advances mission in two or more of these five marks then again, please apply. You can be working in Manchester, the UK or the World. You can be an individual, a small charity or a global mission organisation.
