JRI places a high priority on working in partnerships with other individuals and organisations. This is achieved by networking and consultation, by bringing people together in seminars and workshops, and by joint projects. We aim to complement and contribute to the activities and outreach of the UK churches, and of inter-church groups such as the Environmental Issues Network of the Council of Churches in Britain and Ireland. Some organisations we work with currently include:
Baptist Union Environment Network (BUEN) Dave Gregory is one of the leaders of this initiative.
Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF) We have a number of key collaborations with BRF. The Hodsons have published two books with them and a number of series of Bible Reflections. Dave Gregory has been heavily involved in Messy Church does Science, and in 2021 JRI got involved in Messy Church Goes Wild, with a number of JRI people working on the project.
