This report draws upon new survey data to explore the current social action of the Church of England and the impact and potential of its civic role in English communities today. It shows that the Church both encourages and caters for the diversity of people whom its members wish to help, regardless of faith or creed, and argues that the excellence achieved by the Church in some places should be repeated within communities where such provision is absent. The report concludes by recommending that the Church must prepare itself for such a role, and that the Government should welcome and encourage such a development by opening the doors of public procurement and the provision of public services to the Church and its social mission.
