Citizens UK are facilitating a training course, which will explore Community Organising through a theological lens, building resources and tools to support clergy, lay people and church institutions in their work for social justice.

If you would like to explore how Community Organising relates to the Church’s Prophetic Call to seek peace, justice and the common some workshops are available later this year on how Community Organising methodology relates to Mission and developing parish life, the online sessions run every two months. They will also allow you to learn about ways the practice is being embedded in Diocesan life and ministry development.

The online training begins on Thursday 27 and runs until Thursday 1 December. Find out more by clicking on the Citizens UK Course button opposite.

Tyne & Wear Citizens are also running a similar online training course called, ‘Introduction to Community Organising‘.

As a growing an active chapter of Citizens UK, Tyne & Wear Citizens work with faith groups, universities, schools and charities and are tackling issues such as low pay, hate crime, access to mental health provision, and environmental challenges. If you want to meet other people who are passionate about change and learn how to organise, this may be the course for you.

This training begins on Wednesday 19 January and runs every Wednesday until 9 February. You must attend all four sessions to take part.
