Our Community Development work is a resource for faith communities in Glasgow and the Central Belt. We work alongside local people at the invitation of faith community leaders. The ethos of the team is to work collaboratively across denominations and faiths. We work at three levels:
Resourcing and encouraging individual faith community members who are involved, or would like to become involved, in social action within their community
Working with faith communities to enable them to establish or continue good practice initiatives within their communities and to accompany and facilitate them as they become more active or involved in local community planning and regeneration
To motivate and encourage at strategic level, ecumenical church and faith structures to become more focussed and more co-ordinated in city-wide responses and initiatives relating to poverty reduction and social inclusion.
