Welcome to the Centre for Sustainable Communities

The mission of the Church is firstly to get involved in its local community. To do so in a meaningful way, the congregation needs resources such as skills, knowledge, funds, networks. The Centre for Sustainable Communities (previously: ISWEN or, in English, the Institute for Missiological and Ecumenical Research or IMER) has developed a network of partner organisations who help to develop such resources and make it available to congregations for their work in their communities.
