World Mission

The Church of England has engaged in relationships with churches abroad for over 300 years.

First through the Anglican Mission Agencies who were later joined by the Diocesan Companion Links, the Church of England has both given and received much from our partners in the Anglican Communion. There are also a number of smaller Mission Agencies which relationships with particular countries or world regions. These are the Associate Agencies.

These relationships continue today through the Mission Agencies, the Diocesan Companion Links, parish to parish and school to school links.

Partnership for World Mission is the body that links the General Synod and the National Church Institutions with the Mission Agencies and the Diocesan Companion Links.
