HeartEdge Wessex

Last updated Thursday, 23 March, 2023

We are excited to be involved in this ecumenical initiative originating at St Martin -in-the-Fields in London.  We are exploring how the principles of HeartEdge - Compassion, Culture, Congregation & Commerce - can be used in relevant ways, helping churches to be at the heart of their communities, while being with those on the edge.
