Initiatives

The strength of Wellsprings Together lies in its ability to create dynamic partnerships and its roots within our communities. At a local level we work closely with parishes within the Anglican Diocese of Leeds, including local faith groups, organisations and community groups.

We believe thriving communities are driven by relationships and a shared vision; and that social engagement and locally led innovation helps churches grow to become a resource for the whole community.

Wellsprings Together takes an asset-based approach and faith is central to everything we do. Our objective is to make a real difference in our communities, and it is our partnerships with other faiths and organisations which add strength and energy to this objective.
