Christians in Practice explores how community activity and Christian learning feed each other.  Based on interviews and surveys with 30 Anglican churches in the Dioceses of Birmingham and Lichfield, the project sought to help congregations

  • Understand better what drives the practical outworking of Christian faith;
  • Explore fresh ways of helping people grow in faith;
  • Increase community involvement and social action.

This project has been run collaboration with the Church Urban Fund, the Arthur Rank Centre, the Dioceses of Birmingham and Lichfield, and the Church of England’s Ministry Division.
