The South East Partnership Group is a networking group for organisations working with children and young people in the South East. If you are interested in your organisation joining the group, please get in contact with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The South East Partnership Group has developed the following values to guide the Group's involvement in projects of benefit to children and young people and their leaders:
Theme: A generation who are prepared to take risks and do not back off from all God has called them to
Verse: Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11:6

Theme: A generation who are filled with the Holy Spirit and demonstrate God's power

Theme: A generation exploring new ways of being the body of Christ

Theme: A generation that has been adopted into God's wider family

Theme: A generation that will not stop short of what God is calling them to
Verse: I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining towards what is ahead, I press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenwards in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:12-14
