Church Growth and Social Action?

Our research on church growth in east London shows that it can go hand in hand with action with our neighbours for social justice.

Churches need to talk more about money

In a new report with Durham University, we argue churches need to teach more about money. We’ve also produced a practical guide to help them do so.

CTC Annual Review:

A year of real change

Our 2016-17 Annual Review is now online – showing how we have been helping churches to achieve real change with and for their communities.

About us

The Centre for Theology & Community is based in the heart of east London. We grew out of local churches in membership of Citizens UK – the national home of community organising.

We work with a growing range of churches – including long-established congregations as well as new church plants. Our partner churches are from various denominations and styles. We believe churches in deprived and diverse areas have a vital role to play in the transformation of their communities and of wider society.

We equip churches through the practices of community organising, theological reflection and prayer. We also help them to use their resources more effectively for their mission. We undertake research to support their mission and share the lessons through publications, training and consultancy.
