The local church is a community in transformation, and shares in the transformation of its local community.
The Transforming Communities Department celebrates the diverse ways in which local churches engage with their communities. We offer support as they address contemporary issues. We link churches with local and national bodies with similar concerns. We have developed a network of particular resources around the themes of dementia, diversity, environment, financial resilience, interfaith, older people and social action.
Christians are called to the vulnerability of encountering God in the world around them. Our discipleship is on-going. We discern the movement of the Holy Spirit, seeking to make known Christ’s love for all of God’s creation.
