Can you help?

We would really appreciate your help with our questionnaire!

We will use our questionnaire to help us learn together from the experience of people like you who actually know what housing estate ministry is like, so that we can share that learning with those in similar ministries.

If you can spend a few minute to fill in the questionnaire, you can download it here.

CURBS - Interfaith resource for children

‘Kids United’ is a kit that has been produced especially for Christian groups, schools and churches who, serving mainly Muslim communities, seek to be sensitive to Muslim culture and beliefs while sharing God's love in a distinctively Christian way - well worth a look.

Feeding Britain

Feeding Britain the report of the all-party parliamentary inquiry into hunger in Britain was launched 8th December.  The report group was chaired by the Bishop of Truro and includes Frank Field who spoke at our Autumn conference this year. The report addresses issues of hunger in the context of the wider cause of poverty. Recommendations are clearly not just the responsibility of government or the statutory sector. The report is well researched, well written and well presented. It speaks for those for whom NECN has the most concern. A recommended read.

You can find the report here.
