Dear God...
“Hardly anyone can ever find God because God is right at the end of your mind after all the background thoughts are gone.”

Beyond Beveridge

This project seeks to investigate the current extent of church-led activity in confronting poverty in the UK.

Beyond Beveridge will be a detailed report, based on new research, that will chart and evaluate the size and significance of the Church’s contribution to the social fabric in England.

We aim to use the data and stories from the report to initiate a fresh conversation about the place and role of the church in the delivery of public services and community life.

The report will examine the role that churches are already playing in meeting the needs of the most disaffected and disadvantaged and how they might grasp oncoming opportunities to extend their ministry and mission through partnership with public leaders and practical engagement in public policy reform.
The project is being delivered jointly by St Martin-in-the-Fields, The Bible Society, Durham University Centre for Catholic Studies, The Good Faith Partnership and the Oasis Foundation.

We would be delighted to engage with anyone who feels that they can contribute to this important work. For more information, please contact Ian Sansbury or David Barclay.
