We want to see society changed
For decades now, we have worked alongside vulnerable communities to bring their needs and concerns before those who have the power to change their situation. We consider it part of our biblical mandate as Christians to make the voices of those on the margins heard.
So we equip and support communities to ensure that their priorities are brought to the table so that decision makers, whether at local planning meetings or international summits, can act upon them. We use advocacy and influence – with the church, government and the private sector – to challenge injustice and demand change, and we help our partners to do the same.
We inspire Christians in the UK and globally to campaign, pray and live out the change they want to see more widely, including through the international Renew Our World movement that we helped establish. Engaging the church with issues such as the climate crisis and its impact on the poorest communities is key to our work.
We leverage the church’s reach and influence to amplify the voices of more vulnerable communities through our networks and advocacy movements. By working with local churches, we ensure that changes in policy, systems and theological thinking translate into change at community level.
