In order to gather a large representation of the Body of Christ from across the 4 boroughs of the Black Country, we are encouraging individual congregations to become Partner Churches for the Together Festival. To find out more about Church Partnership, please click the link below:
Church Partnership involves two things:
- Promoting the festival within your congregation
We will be providing all Partner Churches with access to a range of promotional resources, including short films/videos for the festival that can be used in their church gatherings and on their social media platforms and e-publicity that can be shared online. We would ask that Partner Churches agree to regularly promote the festival to those in their churches as much as possible to encourage a good representation of the congregation to come on the day. If you want us to send someone to promote the festival personally, this can be organised with good, prior notice.
- Helping support the costs of the festival
Access to the festival will be completely free of charge for those attending, so we are asking Partner Churches to offer financial support as they feel led, as we did with Together 2020. This will again be optional, but in the true spirit of partnership, we are suggesting a ‘notional expense’ of £3pp for the number of people you expect to be in your church representation on the day. However, we are happy for you to support as much or as little as you can. We would not want this factor to be obstructive to you being involved.
