A personal welcome from Canon Steven Saxby, Executive Officer


"Welcome to the website of London Churches Social Action! We are an ecumenical body for church social action across all Christian traditions in the capital. We hope you find this website a useful introduction to our work and a helpful resource."

We were founded as the London Churches Group in 1983 and report to the London Church Leaders, a twice-yearly breakfast meeting of Anglican, Baptist, Catholic, Independent, Methodist, Orthodox, Pentecostal, Salvation Army, and United Reformed senior church leaders. 

The Church Leaders' Executive is a core group of church leaders chaired by the Bishop of Stepney, Adrian Newman.

Key themes for London Churches Social Action are as follows:

  • Social and economic justice, including poverty and inequality

  • The environment

  • Asylum-seekers, refugees and migrants

  • Health, including HIV and AIDS

  • Housing and Homelessness

  • Serving the community through welfare and community projects

  • Regeneration, including the impact on local communities and the provision of community space

  • The churches' response to major emergencies
