Social Engagement & Urban Renewal

Loving, Living, Learning

The work of the social engagement and urban renewal team responds to God's call to love our neighbour, care for creation and enable flourishing communities. We want to see people living together as God intended free from poverty, inequality and injustice.

We work alongside a wide range of groups and organisations helping to build relationships, promote learning and share resources. In particular we work closely with the Church Urban Fund to support Wellsprings Together and Faithful Neighbours
