Growing Partnerships: School and Parish Church

The Growing Partnership covenant is designed to establish and grow a foundation for both schools and church communities to grow in partnership to fulfill God's mission. We are looking to grow a shared sense of belonging within both bodies. The full guidance document to assist schools and parish churches can be found here:

Growing Partnerships Guidance for Maintained Schools

This work aims to align with the Church of England Growing Faith initiative which promotes a partnership between the three communities of church, school and household to enable the discovery, exploration and growth for all in those communities. The partnership is imagined as intersections of a set of overlapping spheres to find and promote ways to help faith to grow with children, young people and households.
