What we do
BUILDING COMMON GOOD
Our work calls people to play their part to strengthen the bonds of social trust - by putting Common Good principles into practice and by connecting with others of different opinions and backgrounds in shared purpose.
We call and support churches to participate as active local institutions to strengthen civic immune systems in their neighbourhood for the wellbeing of the whole community.
Our resources include our Here: Now: Us People Common Good resources for lay people and Christian leaders, our 10-week Common Good Schools programme and our Common Good Builder process.
Our public conversations and bespoke sessions provide opportunities for people to engage with Common Good Thinking and our youth branch, the New Perspectives Network, brings young people together in the 20s-30s age bracket.
We intentionally work ecumenically: the T4CG e-newsletter reaches across the silos of the different Christian traditions, performing a unique cross-pollination role, as well as a Common Good perspective on the signs of the times.
Building relationships between churches and other institutions is at the heart of the way we work. This 'bridging capital' strengthens civil society and builds trust. We regularly confer with our partners and cherish our links with allies from fellow faith and non religious traditions. We practise what we preach. Everything we do is achieved through partnerships, with the support of our wonderful volunteers, and associates who make up our working groups.
