Diocese of Carlisle

Partnership in World Mission

Being a member of the Church raises our sights. It raises our sights because the God of Mission has a Church in the world and we are part of her ongoing story. This means that we share the concerns for evangelism, peace, justice and integral human development expressed by Christian communities all around the world.

In the Diocese of Carlisle our sights are raised by the following:

  • Anglican Companion Links with the Diocese of Zululand and the Diocese of Northern Argentina
  • Ecumenical Link with the Lutheran Diocese of Stavanger
  • Mission Agencies - USPG, CMS (Church Mission Society) & the overseas work of the Mothers' Union
  • Christian Aid's aid and development campaigns
  • the annual Bishop's Harvest Appeal

A World Development Officer and a small team representing this work meet three times a year as the Partnership in World Mission (PWM) Committee.
