The United Church of Canada has formal relationships—"partnerships”—with national churches, ecumenical organizations, Christian councils, and church agencies around the world. They connect with and support a much wider range of church and community organizations. We are one partner among many, called to receive and to give. We journey together in humility toward relationships that are just, honest, respectful, and life-giving.
Along with partners in Canada, the United Church has partners in the following regions of the world:
The United Church and its global partners are called to work together in God's mission for wholeness of life. Partnerships grow from our history and experience of collaboration within ecumenical, global, and social movements. What we have learned through our common effort is expressed in partnership principles.
The Partner Council is one way of living out the church’s partnership principles. The council, which is accountable to the Permanent Committee on Programs for Mission and Ministry, provides advice and feedback from a global perspective.
Three Canadian government sources provide valuable co-funding support for the development work of United Church of Canada global partners.
