Church in Action

A national survey of church-based social action

February 2015

Social action is not an optional side project for the Church; it is core to its heart and mission. The commitment to this calling can be clearly seen in the sheer scale and diversity of activities offered by local churches, ranging from food banks and debt advice, to lunch clubs and fitness classes. 

This report reveals the scale and nature of Anglican social action in England.

By sharing the results of a large-scale national survey, this report highlights and celebrates the contribution that churches are making to their local communities.
