Mission at the heart of the church, the church at the heart of mission
  • Are you passionate about mission being at the heart of the church? Could you lead, inspire, make connections and build relationships locally and globally?
  • A place for fresh, inspiring, and thought-provoking ideas about mission around the world
  • The Global Connections Code of Best Practice for Church to Church Partnerships (C2CP) is designed to provide guidelines for churches interested in forming cross-cultural partnerships
  • NHS (Charges to Overseas Visitors) Regulations 2015 came into force on 6 April 2015, and the changes imposed by the new Regulations have major implications for access to NHS healthcare for mission partners.

Global Connections is a growing network of over 300 UK churches and agencies with a passion for mission. Our members include organisations of all sizes working in countries all over the world. Drawing on this wealth of experience, together we seek to address the key challenges in mission today.
