The Partner Churches scheme is an invitation to you and your church, to participate in the ministry of Resound Worship.

A decade into our journey, having produced more than 100 songs, and having contributed to the work of hundreds of songwriters through our workshops, retreats and podcast, we're seeking to build on the relationships we have built with churches around the world. We believe that to work effectively for churches we need to work with churches.

What is a Partner Church?

A Resound Worship Partner Church is three things:

- a patron, who shares our vision and financially supports our ministry
- a beacon, with wide access to our material, to use regularly in your worship
- a consultant, who contributes to conversations as we seek to better serve the local church

What is involved?

To become a Partner Church, we invite a donation of £100 per year. Primarily, this would be a gift. Your church's way of saying that you value and support the work of Resound Worship in developing new songs and songwriters for the Church and that you want to invest in seeing the ministry continue to flourish.

But the partnership would come with benefits. We would share with you everything that we produce, in order to resource your worship:

  • An Annual Pass to the website - free access to every score, track, chart & video for over 100 songs
  • A complimentary copy of any CD or book produced in that year
  • A twice-yearly newsletter
  • Your church listed as a Partner Church on our website, with a link back to your church website*

As a Partner Church we would also like to include you in our wider conversations about worship. From time to time we will run surveys or consultations - either online or face-to-face - through which we seek to understand and better serve the needs of real churches, and you will make a valuable contribution to these.

Who might become a Partner Church?

There are various reasons a church might choose to become a partner. For example, you might:

  • regularly use Resound songs and recognise the value to your worship
  • already hold an annual pass and wish to make an extra step of support
  • have songwriters among your members who have or could benefit from our ministry
  • share our commitment to producing songs of quality and substance, and support the aims and values of SHWF

How do we sign up?

To become a Resound Worship Partner Church, please complete the form below and we will send you a registration form (which will need to be signed by one of your church leaders) and details of how to make your donation. Or use the form to contact us with any other questions you may have.

 

We recognise that some churches may wish to make a greater contribution, proportional to their general budget, but we recommend £100 as a starting point.

Your annual gift would be treated as 'unrestricted funds', ie it would go into the general funds of the Song & Hymn Writers Foundation, our parent charity. This is partly because there are 'benefits' to you, so we would have to treat a propotion of it as general trading income; it is also because - as with all charitable organisations - unrestricted funds enable us to plan and do our work most effectively. If you would prefer to 'restrict' your gift, please do contact us.

It will not be possible to Gift Aid partnership gifts because they come from an organisation, even if donated by an individual. If you wish to personally fund your church's partnership, we recommend that you Gift Aid your gift to your church which would then make the partnership donation, rather than doing so on the church's behalf. If you prefer to make an individual donation outside this scheme you can do so here or by contacting us.

The Partner Churches scheme is designed to be an ongoing relationship, but you would be free to withdraw from the scheme at any time, while retaining access benefits through to the end of that partnership year.

*You can, of course, remain anonymous, but listing our Partner Churches is important to us. It lends credibility to what we do, demonstrating that we are working for, and with the support of, real, local churches.
