2013 marks the third year of our partnership with the beliefs and values thinktank Ekklesia, which has acheived a high profile for its imaginative engagement with issues of religion and politics in a changing society.
Ekklesia is Christian in its orientation, drawing particular inspiration from peace churches, Anabaptism and a wide range of ecumenical links. But it also works creatively with people of all faiths, as well as with humanists and those of no religious conviction.
In addition to publishing books, producing reports and responding through the media, parliamentary bodies, academic alliances and policy organisations, Ekklesia runs a 'news briefing' service and associated bulletins.
Ekklesia's co-director, Simon Barrow, is also involved in providing press and media support for the Just Festival.
