The beating heart of every community

Churches have always been the focal point of their community, a place where people could turn to for companionship and support. We’re pleased to say that community spirit is still very much in evidence today, as the inspiring entries to our ‘Reaching Out, Inviting In’ competition prove.

The entry criteria was simple. We asked churches to send us details of how they had engaged with their community during the past year. Whether it was a one-off event or an ongoing outreach project, if it was making a difference we wanted to hear about it.

Here are our winners
