Local Mission Partners

The scheme is a partnership between SU and a local group of Christians comprised of representatives of the local Christian community.

The local group of Christians usually form themselves into a Trust/Company (for employment purposes) or a Support/Management Group (when not actually employing a worker).

Each Local Mission Partner is encouraged to be a local expression of Scripture Union, reflecting its aims and working principles in ways appropriate to the work and locality.

Hear about how Scripture Union can help local groups with a vision to engage with their local community:
