The 2009/10 Jellicoe community has five members – Theo and Megan from the University of Notre Dame and Ian from Keble College, Oxford are part of the residential community, working in Shadwell, while Rebecca (Balliol College, Oxford) and Amma (University of East London) work in Hackney and Newham.  They are all under the oversight of Contextual Theology Centre director Angus Ritchie – and seek to engage CTC’s partner congregations in broad-based action for social change.
You are warmly invited to join them, and their partner churches, in worship and celebration at the Royal Foundation of St Katharine on 1st December at 7.30pm. Let us know if you plan to attend.

Introducing the Jellicoe Community

Uncategorized l

Welcome to the Jellicoe Blog!  It describes the work of a community of interns who live and work in East London.  Drawn from Oxford, Notre Dame and East London Universities, they work with congregations in London Citizens – the capital’s broad-based community organisation.  Community (or citizen) organising is the movement which inspired and formed Barack Obama, and is having an increasing impact in the UK.

The community is a project of the Contextual Theology Centre, and is inspired by the life and witness of Fr Basil Jellicoe, priest and social reformer.

UPDATE: Plans are now afoot to create a broader Jellicoe Community, building on and extending beyond our internship programme.
