About us

The Centre for Theology & Community is based in the heart of east London. We grew out of local churches involved in community organising, and work with a growing number of churches from a wide range of denominations and traditions. We are strategic partners of Citizens UK.

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 these churches through the practices of community organising, theological reflection and prayer.

Our workstreams include congregational development, leadership training and neighbourhood organising.

We also engage in research and reflection on these themes, and help churches to harness their assets more effectively for their mission.
