“I wholeheartedly support the aims of Together Canterbury in helping us tackle poverty in this diocese” Bishop Trevor
Together Canterbury is one of a growing network of joint ventures between CUF and Anglican dioceses across the UK, working together to provide long-term sustainable support for Christians working in often difficult circumstances. Hope is being brought to marginalised people and deprived communities.
Working in conjunction with Canterbury Diocese, Together Canterbury brings people together to share best practice and build capacity with workshops and conferences, training and organisational support. Through CUF we can provide a national voice for what is happening locally with regular meetings with MP's and reports to Parliament.
Issues of low income, debt, lack of skills, poor mental health and isolation are complex and closely interlinking, trapping communities and individuals in a web of poverty. Our vision is to see all churches, in every community coming together to tackle these issues through action, prayer and giving. we take seriously Jesus' command to be good news to the poor.
Together Canterbury is embedded within the Communities and Partnerships Framework at Canterbury Diocese, enabling close contact and liaison between the many outreach projects undertaken by the framework.
