Churches Together in Britain and Ireland and the China Forum liaise with Chinese partners. There is an ongoing dialogue with local and national church leaders in China, both Protestant and Catholic. Through partnership, we enable projects initiated by Chinese Christians, and adapted to local conditions, to find the appropriate interest, expertise and support from members of the China Forum in Britain and Ireland.
Our partners in China are involved in a full range of activities. Specific ways we support their work are:
- Theological education, including provision of scholarships for church personnel, help with the construction of training facilities and equipping theological libraries.
- Development projects - responding to appropriate Protestant and Catholic initiatives in social services and poverty alleviation schemes in rural China.
- English teaching - providing Christian English teachers from Britain and Ireland to work in predominantly rural tertiary colleges with the Amity Foundation and through AITECE.
