Being a Christian is not just about worship in church on a Sunday. We believe that God calls us both to direct work to meet a wide variety of needs but also to work for justice at a local, national and international level.

There are many Christian initiatives in areas such as modern slavery (The Clewer Initiative), the environment (A Rocha and Green Christian Link) and emergency and long-term aid (Christian Aid, Tearfund and World Vision).

Within the diocese we are developing many local links with these and other groups. If you have a concern and would like to know if we have some work already going on in that area, or would like to approach us to work with you, then please contact Richard Steel, Mission Team Leader, by email or by calling 01522 50 40 30.

The Bishop of Lincoln’s Social Justice Fund

This grant-giving fund was set up in 2014 as a partnership between the Diocese of Lincoln and the Lincolnshire Community Foundation.

It is particularly appropriate for projects that aim to assist and improve areas relating to community cohesion, community facilities, young people, older people, the local economy and arts and heritage.
