Saltbox has developed a range of important strategic partnerships with various national Christian ministries and other local organisations.
Cinnamon Network: www.cinnamonnetwork.co.uk
Cinnamon provides support nationally for churches looking to start new caring initiatives in their communities. Saltbox’s CEO, Lloyd Cooke, is one of two national advisors to Cinnamon. Saltbox has also provided the model for the national rollout of Faith Action Audits and also the Stoke-on-Trent pioneered Civic Prayer Breakfast.
Gather is a national network of over 120 Christian unity movements in UK towns and cities, helping to promote unity and strategic sector engagement. Stoke-on-Trent’s CONNECT Leaders’ meeting is one of these movements and is recognised as a leading model of such unity and city engagement.
