Changing Lives through Social Entrepreneurship - London
@St. Peter’s, Vere Street, London W1G 0DQ
Biblically it seems clear: our good work matters to God – it’s something he gave us to help cultivate his creation (Genesis 1) – and the gospel is good news to the poor and oppressed (Luke 4). But how often do we connect these two?
Good work has intrinsic worth, helping others to flourish through the products and services we deliver. It can also generate the funds we share with those in need. And for some, work is the very means to participate in Jesus’ mission to the poor. Social entrepreneurs are among these people: keenly aware of the brokenness of our world and using their creative gifts and business skills to do something about it, in God’s strength.

Participants will explore key learning and experience about what has worked in different places, and shape a future vision for place-based, co-operative and social enterprise innovation, supporting clear, viable alternatives to the traditional economic models and policies that have failed to serve people and communities in so many parts of the UK.
