An event held in the North East on Friday (June 15) was a rallying cry for people engaged in community social action.
Organised by the Faith in our Community (FIC) Partnership Steering Group, which is backed by the Church of England Diocese of Durham, the event will run at the Hetton & Eppleton Community Hall, Office Place, Hetton-le-Hole, the launch of phase two of the project.
Key Note Speaker Professor Hilary Russell from Liverpool John Moores University addressed the group talking about recent research findings based on a background of the Government’s ‘Big Society’ initiative. She said: “The main purpose of the study was to act as a catalyst in bringing together current best practice in Christian care in local communities with the resources and knowledge base needed to multiply those good works across the country.”
