Mission Center: The Episcopal Church: Partnerships

Asia and the Pacific

The fifteen diverse provinces which comprise the Asia and the Pacific region are home to one third of the world’s population. The Episcopal Church works in close cooperation with our partners, and facilitates the development of new relationships between Episcopal dioceses and the Anglican/Episcopal churches in the region. Collaborating with churches and non-governmental organizations, we address global issues like peace and justice, climate change, children’s rights, and human trafficking.

 The Amity Foundation, an independent Chinese voluntary organization, was created in 1985 on the initiative of Chinese Christians to promote education, social services, health, and rural development from China’s coastal provinces in the east to the minority areas of the west.  

From Covenant to Companionship
The Most Rev. Katherine Jefferts Schori, announced, in her Sermon at General Convention’s Opening Eucharist, that the  Episcopal Church in the Philippines “will present a gift to our church in gratitude for our continuing covenant relationship, as a sign of the strong and growing heart in that Church, eager to reach out to others in love. It is a sacrificial gift, and it will bring abundant life to both donor and recipient.” Thus was the ECP transformed from being a missionary church to an autonomous province; from being a receiving church to a giving church.
