In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our usual ways of being the church have been challenged.

There are limits on our gathered worship and on our sacraments. But one thing that has not changed is the significance of the church in local communities. The church continues to love God and love neighbour through acts of service and by working towards social transformation and social justice. As churches across England work creatively and tirelessly to tackle needs and strengthen communities, our prayer is that God will be at work through our actions, making us more like Jesus and growing the church both spiritually and numerically.

The GRA:CE project brings together three years of rigorous research on the relationship between social action, discipleship, and church growth across England. At this critical time in our nation and in our church, the GRA:CE project offers important and in-depth insights to equip us for the next stage of the church's ministry.
