The United Society for Partners in the Gospel is the Anglican mission agency that partners churches and communities worldwide in God’s mission to enliven faith, strengthen relationships, unlock potential and champion justice. Founded in 1701.
Environmental degradation. Turbulent global politics. Gender injustice. The forced displacement of people at record levels. The harassment and killing of indigenous peoples. USPG believes today’s major challenges, exacerbated by the global pandemic, cry out for words and actions that express a love and solidarity that goes beyond narrow self-interest and national boundaries.
We believe the churches of the Anglican Communion are called urgently in mission to be communities of resistance and hope, witness to the healing power of Christ’s love.
USPG has long established relationships with churches of the Anglican Communion in over fifty countries. Our priorities in mission are those of our sisters and brothers across the world serving God and their communities in a wide range of different contexts and cultures. These priorities are shaped by international consultations held every three years. The work is very wide-ranging and changes over time. However, there are many common themes like theological education, leadership development and advocacy; education and healthcare; as well as meeting the challenges of climate justice, migration, gender-based violence and discrimination against minority groups.
USPG has three strategic aims to – Rethink Mission, Energise Church and Community and Champion Justice. This strategy is delivered by four teams – Global Relations, Mission Engagement, Communications, and Finance and Resources.
