What do we do with this ?

The church is increasingly recognised by local authorities as potentially having a lot to offer.

We are already engaged at the Coal Face.

We have brought together a significant group of statutory and voluntary organisations who work across the region. 

We are initiating a resource group to help share, initiate and develop possible projects in partnership with churches and community groups. 

It was noticeable that all the churches recognised social issues in their area but a number were uncertain how to respond.  In recognition of this, Lincoln University has run two free workshop evenings to explore these issues on Tuesday 31st January and 7th February 2012 between 7.00 and 9.00 p.m. at the Market House, the multi use community centre in Long Sutton.  20 people attended and so there will be more courses in the early summer and autumn also run by Lincoln University
