Social Justice

Social Justice – we act justly as a sign of our love for God and our neighbour.

We act justly as a sign of our love for God and for our neighbour.  Jesus gave to the Church, his body, a mandate to witness against the structural, communal and personal sin which lies at the heart of injustice.  

Churches wanting to explore how best they can connect up social justice, discipleship and church growth can access a free six session course developed by the Church Urban Fund.

Churches in Hull and the East Riding have a Social Responsibility Officer, Andy Dorton, who is available to work with churches.  Andy can provide a one-stop-shop for anything about life in Hull in church and community. He has been embedded in Hull for 25 years working across denominations and with the local authority.  Andy has specialist knowledge about housing and homelessness; community engagement and development, local community-service ministries, responses to and recovery from trauma, addiction and imprisonment.  He also knows how to put you in touch with people.  He will also help churches explore a spirituality of place, join you up with support networks and help local church-related community engagement and faith exploration.

The Diocese works in partnership with the Church Urban Fund in Middlesbrough. This work is co-ordinated by Kate Jeffels from Together Middlesbrough and Cleveland
