Our goals
           
 
We are an educational charity and our primary aim is to resource people to grow in the faith, in order to help them respond to contemporary society’s spiritual hunger and thirst for justice.

 

 

 

"Catholic tradition ought to be concerned with presenting a depth and range of resources that will stop anyone from too easily believing that the Church at any one moment has got it all wrapped up, has fathomed the meaning of Jesus Christ. [This is] the fruit of trying to keep eyes and ears and heart open to the wholeness of what’s being passed on to us – including the awkwardness, the half-hidden points of conflict, the half muffled voices. Catholicism is supposed to have some connection with wholeness, yes?"

Rowan Williams, St Alban’s Holborn,
June 1990
 
 
  What we do:    
 

Produce publications
Which explore basic themes in Christian theology, introducing people to the riches of the tradition and contemporary insights and by publishing books and booklets which tackle current issues in Church and society.

In every case our objective is to set out a progressive Catholic vision which values our Anglican way by balancing scripture, tradition and reason with the lived experience of Christians today.

Discounts on our publications are available to our supporters.


Holding conferences

Titles of the residential conferences have included:
• Living the Mystery
• Living the Eucharist
