Celebrating Partner Church Sunday

Faith Without Borders Logo

For congregations who have partner churches in other parts of the world (such as Transylvania or India), this is an opportunity to focus on that relationship and on the other congregation. The liaisons to the partner church are often involved in planning and participating in the service.

The modern “Partner Church” movement celebrated its 20th anniversary in July 2010 during a special conference in Kolozsvar, Transylvania, hosted by the Transylvania Unitarian Church. This event recognized the uniquely transformative influence of close relationships between local Unitarian Universalist (UU) congregations in North America and local UU congregations in other parts of the world. Partner churches create mutually supportive relationships with varying focuses agreed upon by the partners. The UU Partner Church Council—an independent organization—is the key organizer of the partner church movement for North American congregations and individuals.
