Estates Ministry

Much of our ministry takes place in an urban environment and/or on estates. We recognise the unique work that our churches are engaged in as they serve the complex needs of such communities.

We work by building trust and empowering local people to be actively involved in addressing the areas of greatest need in their communities.

We work through relational partnerships with the aim of bringing about long-term, sustainable change by mobilising local people to be the source of the change they want to see and to use the assets already available in their community.
