Every Local Ecumenical Partnership (LEP) has:

- 1) a Covenant, which is a document committing the partners to working together.  It says what they will do and why they will be doing it. It is a public statement of faith in their future  together.

- 2) a Constitution, which defines how it works.  Each separate denomination has its own rules and ways of working, but an LEP has to decide how two separate local entities can be   merged without doing violence to the parent Churches’ rules (which sometimes have  legal force).

Waveney Valley EP has a covenant which it has called its “Declaration of Intent”  (click here for pdf file) and a Constitution (click here for pdf file).

The Constitution was agreed by all the Partnership churches in November 2010 and is now our effective basis of organisation.
