Parish Community Support

Wellsprings Together offer guidance and support to parish churches looking to reflect and develop their community activities. We aim to be a resource, adding capacity and expertise to local efforts and work. As the Anglican Diocese of Leeds’ chosen partner for supporting parish-based social action we want to help nurture and inspire a movement of faith-motivated social action which will enable people and communities to flourish. We want to build access to resources, information and expertise in faith-based social action both recognising our own capability but also facilitating and hosting that of others.

Our small team have been supporting faith-based social action for the past ten years and bring a passion to support and resource the church to make a difference in their localities. We have supported churches from inner city Bradford to rural North Yorkshire and everything in between in a variety of flexible ways, developing new projects, forming partnerships, facilitating reflection and raising funds.

Ways in which we can Support

Workshop Facilitation: engaging people in a conversation combining theological reflection with practical discussions on social action and discipleship. This is ideal for churches who want to review their social action, evaluate changed priorities and resources and to focus on the next steps.

“The workshop from Wellsprings Together was very useful. They helped us think about what the needs were in our local community, and invited us to think about how we could best serve them with some good ideas presented.”

Project Development: helping you turn ideas and vision into reality. This could be through some direction around a funding bid, connecting to wider support and expertise or supporting creative thinking.

Research: providing thorough and objective analysis of the needs of your parish, helping to give you additional insight and a solid basis for focusing your church’s resources on the greatest needs. We have access to the Local Insight Tool which enables us to do this in an up-to-date and detailed way.

Wellsprings Together Angels: Wellsprings Angels are able to offer professional consultancy skills for an agreed period of time to support your church / organisation to work towards transforming communities.
