What is a Local Ecumenical Partnership?

Local Ecumenical Partnerships come in a variety of forms, but each is a situation where more than one Christian denomination is working together under a formal agreement. These formal agreements are ‘sponsored’ by an Intermediate Body which has responsibility for supporting, encouraging and monitoring them.

All Saints is a “Single Congregation LEP”.  Anglicans and Methodists (and others) worship together as an integrated body, contribute to a common purse, and operate under rules contained in Model Governing Documents adopted by all such LEPs.
