Welcome to USPG - United Society Partners in the Gospel
Welcome to USPG – United Society Partners in the Gospel. Founded in 1701, we are the Anglican mission agency that partners churches and communities worldwide in God’s mission to enliven faith, strengthen relationships, unlock potential and champion justice.
Environmental degradation. Turbulent global politics. Gender injustice. The desperate flight of migrants. Forced displacement of people at record levels. USPG believes today’s major challenges 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. So we invite you to journey together with us in rethinking mission, energising church and community and championing justice, which are our three strategic aims (see below).
Whether you come to a vision for mission in the 21st century as a church leader or as an inquiring individual, we would be delighted to hear from and engage with you. So please do not hesitate to be in touch.

THREE STRATEGIC AIMS
We bring people together from different parts of the global church in mutually enriching conversation and profound encounters, to increase understanding and deepen our discipleship as inter-cultural Christians.
Energising Church and community
We make connections between the dioceses and communities of the Churches of Britain and Ireland and those overseas and we seek ways in which faith and action can go hand-in-hand. We look to strengthen the unity and capacity of the Anglican church by promoting education and leadership and by learning from each other in rich exchange.
We accompany churches of the Anglican Communion in their struggles against injustices associated with gender, climate change, migration, the human rights of indigenous people and inter-religious living. We support Christians across the world to form communities of hope and resistance and we strive to give a platform to the faithful among those with power in the secular world.
