This website contains a growing database of resources for ministry and mission in our multi faith city. You can search it by type of resource (above) or activity (right).

The Greater London Presence & Engagement Network (PEN) is part of the Church of England’s national process of training and equipping Christians for ministry and mission in a multi faith society. This is done both by supporting the work of congregations and chaplaincies in multi faith contexts and by helping them share their experience with the wider church.  These stories of local engagement are our most precious resource.

PEN has a blog which highlights aspects of engagement from across the network. Susanne Mitchell is the Network Co-ordinator, she can be contacted by phone or email.

The network played a central role in setting up Near Neighbours (Eastern London)- one of four hubs of a £5m programme to build relationships across faiths.
