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 

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

We also run the Near Neighbours programme for Eastern London – harnessing the potential of community organising to develop local leaders and build relationships of solidarity and trust across faiths and cultures.
