Welcome

Let's work together, across our differences, for the Common Good

Together for the Common Good is a movement of people bridging different interests and traditions, working to put relationships and the dignity of the human person at the heart of political, economic and cultural decision-making. We promote Common Good Thinking, a simple set of principles anyone can put into practice.

We want to see the world transformed as more and more people take responsibility for the Common Good. We encourage collaboration for the Common Good across religious and political differences, especially between different Christian denominations, and also with friends from other faiths and with our secular allies. We work with many partners and are part of a growing coalition bound by a shared commitment to human flourishing. We believe everyone can be an agent of change for the Common Good, help to strengthen civil society and build a common life together. 

Read our latest newsletter

Cover of the T4CG bookWe want to see servant leadership that honours human dignity and models mutual respect across our different circumstances, politics and traditions. We hope for a new humility which recognises that those who we disagree with on some (even major) issues may also have vital gifts and skills, good motives and a genuine desire to serve the community.
