HeartEdge is a new network for churches growing practices and patterns of sustainable mission, initiated by our friends and partners St Martin-in-the-Fields.
HeartEdge’s focus is on:
Congregation – approaches to liturgy, worship and day-to-day communal life
Commerce – activities generating finance and developing social enterprise
Compassion – addressing social needs while retaining congregational participation
Culture – art, music and ideas to re-imagine the Christian narrative for the present moment
HeartEdge supports its members in finding their stories, sharing resources and connecting effectively with others developing their church and community. We create spaces where members give from their experience and take from others – an exchange that’s often inspiring, always compelling, and mutually useful for all participants. We want HeartEdge to be an essential resource and a valuable community, as you develop your church and neighbourhood.
When you join HeartEdge you and your church get:
Connections: Access to all kinds of useful contacts and connections to help your church develop cultural, commercial and community activity
Information: Grow your knowledge and insight to help you in your work via the lived experience of others
Visits: Opportunity to meet those most relevant to you in situ, gaining understanding of their work and experience, live
Mentors: Via phone calls & meetings, appropriate learning and support from others
Events: Programmed with bespoke content useful for your context
Publications: An emerging range of resources based on approaches to ministry used by HeartEdge members
Projects: Support and resources to begin specific social justice initiatives
Emails and Online: We’ll keep in touch with you via a monthly email with links to useful resources via our website
HeartEdge is fuelled by its members. Members are people and churches who are makers and takers – people and churches that both give to the network and take from it.
So why not connect in and find out how a partnership with HeartEdge can best serve and support your parish in mission.
