All clergy, ministers, church-related community workers and lay leaders need to understand how they and their churches may relate to the community in which they are set, and this is an essential part of their training. This book provides a thorough and professional introduction to the subject, and includes: what is community?; community work and mission; models of community work; ethnic, cultural and religious diversity; the local authority and voluntary agencies; working with volunteers; and spirituality in community participation.

Review:

"'This book aims to take on the challenge of equipping people with the skills, understanding and information to critically explore the field of community and ministry. It is a timely publication given the increasing government acknowledgement of the contribution of faith communities in both urban and rural community development and regeneration.' Jim Robertson, Chair of Enabling Group Churches Community Work Alliance"
