Churches are involved in many social and campaigning projects across the diocese that greatly contribute to the good of their communities.
This work ranges from fighting to end modern slavery, helping the lonely, supporting people in their workplace and joining citizens campaigns that call upon our politicians and leaders to create a fairer, stronger society.
The Department for Partnerships & Mission supports much of the work that takes place and has produced a number of videos to highlight the scope and impact it has on people and communities.
There are more videos to come but for now you can watch the first to be released by clicking on the links below:
Men in Sheds, Kirkby-in-Ashfield: a workshop that bring together men who might otherwise become isolated and depressed following retirement, redundancy and bereavement;
Citizens UK; how citizens get together to fight for a fairer, safer society
The Church of England has released figures which show the full extent of its work to support local communities across the country, with more than 33,000 social action projects – from food banks to debt counselling – being run or supported by churches.
