As churches we believe God is calling us to more trusting, encouraging, supportive, resourcing and accountable relationships. Why? To bear faithful and fruitful witness to Jesus Christ and because it expresses the biblical conviction that the church is always more than local. Nothing invites a fresh blowing of the Spirit like open, prayerful, Christ-centred relationships. We are repenting of any unbiblical isolationism that robs us of so much and seeking to find fresh actions that express a deepening of relationship with one another, travelling together wherever Jesus takes us.

#BUStogether is used when talking about doing mission and ministry together with other churches and agencies including ministers’ fellowships, partner organisations, local church partnerships and national campaigns.
