Partners in Christ
Since 2013 Knock has been in partnership with Strand Presbyterian Church in Sydenham. The aim of our two churches is to work together to increase understanding of mission in the 21st century within each congregation, and to provide a focus for people to engage in mission in the Knock and Sydenham areas.
The partnership has involved building relationships between Knock and Strand, surveys of the Knock and Sydenham areas to indicate our concern for these communities, and a number of joint initiatives. These have included the revival of a children’s summer holiday bible club at Strand; a community fun day in the Sydenham area, organized with other local churches; educational courses to help young mothers engage with their children; and musical events.
New Mission Opportunities
All this, and the opening of Strand’s new church premises in October 2013, have provided many valuable opportunities for members of Knock and Strand engage in mission. We continue to look for opportunities to build relationships with people in our communities in the name of Jesus Christ; and we continue to build relationships between Knock and Strand through annual partnership Sundays and events in each other’s congregation.
