Social & community concerns
As a Diocese we want to facilitate a wide network of projects, groups, churches and individuals working on relevant issues of concern to world, church and community.
We gather and communicate the wealth of information and resources available alongside receiving feedback from existing work. In addition we identify need, explore the bigger picture, and seek to make a difference through activity, dialogue, theological reflection, prayer, encouragement and resource allocation. We work amoungst many Christian organisations both regionally and in partnership.
If you would like to contact someone about our work in this field please contact the Revd Christine Copsey (Social, Environmental & Community Concerns Officer) on email@example.com
Christine is responsible for the organisation of the Social and Community Concerns Forum as well as the Criminal Justice Forum in the Diocese, both ecumenically based.
