Building Community relationships that support Social Justice
Through the Covid-19 lockdown many of our parishes and deaneries have risen to the challenge and found ways to continue their ministry …. we are nothing if not resourceful.
For many of them their creative approaches have reached more in the communities they serve and touched folk far beyond their parish or deanery enabling them to establish innovative mission approaches and relationships. This has opened up new opportunities to work with and support social justice initiatives in the communities they serve.
- How can we the Deanery be agents for change and Social Justice?
- How can we make the most of these new opportunities and enable Deaneries to spearhead, energise and resource the call to action to support those in our communities who are marginalised and impoverished?
In this Deanery Briefing we will hear from Jonathan Cox, Deputy Director Citizen UK, about the partnership work they are doing with Deaneries. He will explore the opportunity for Deaneries to develop a cohesive and dynamic Community of Practice that will engage with communities to change and transform lives addressing issues that matter to them including:
- Unemployment as a result of the lockdown
- Urban and rural Social Exclusion and Isolation
- Mental health
- Inadequate Housing
- Social engagement
As we emerge from this period of lockdown Deaneries are ideally placed with a key role to respond and engage with and support social justice initiatives in the communities they serve.
