Many of our churches and schools run regular activities or one-off projects that show their faith lived out in everyday action, caring and serving people in need in their communities.
The diocese's Social Responsibility Panel exists to support churches in their loving service of the world. The panel is chaired by the Archdeacon of Leicester, and individual panel members hold briefs for different specialist areas, which you can explore below.
Bishop Martyn's Social Policy Advisor can also be contacted (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions about engaging your community on social or political issues.
