The Churches’ Trust is an interdenominational organisation established by the leaders of Christian churches to respond to deprivation in the area. The Churches’ Trust supports local people in crisis, respecting their dignity at all times, whilst signposting them to community groups and other agencies to address circumstances leading to the crisis situation.
The Churches Trust work is characterised by two main facets: on the one hand addressing deprivation and social injustice, working with people at the margins of society; and on the other hand, churches standing together with a united voice in an area plagued with the legacy of division through the troubles in Northern Ireland, aiming to create a shared and better future for all. Hence,
Churches Standing Together With Those in Need
