Together for the Common Good is exploring how different Christian traditions, other faith communities and secular allies can work better together for social justice.
Would you like to explore how we can collaborate for the common good?
With growing inequality, increasing centralisation of power, social fragmentation, dispossession of the marginalised and pressure on the disadvantaged, the need for a rebalancing and reconciliation in society is more urgent than ever.
Churches and faith-based organisations have long worked side by side with communities to help people transform their lives. It's now vital that we all come together to collaborate for the common good.
Where people of faith and none are working together for social justice, we want to look at the factors that make this work. Starting from Anglican, Catholic and Free Church social justice traditions to highlight effective strategies for collaboration, T4CG is also learning from examples of community initiatives involving interfaith and secular allies.
We hope you’ll join us on our journey. Contribute to the T4CG Blog, explore our resources pages (reading lists and useful downloads), case studies, opinion pieces and consider if you would like to Get involved. Read what people say about T4CG and the inspiration behind the project.

The Together for the Common Good inquiry continues with the 12-month research process running until the end of this year; following that, at least one publication will follow along with other activities. The project draws inspiration both from current examples of joint working and the legacy of the ecumenical partnership of Bishop David Sheppard and Archbishop Derek Worlock - learn more here.
