About Ekklesia

Ekklesia is an independent, not-for-profit thinktank which examines the role of beliefs, values and faith in public life. It advocates transformative ideas and solutions rooted in a strong commitment to social justice, Christian nonconformism, nonviolence, and creative conversations among those of different convictions (religious and otherwise).

We look at power and cultural change in society broadly, promoting new models of mutual economy, conflict transformation, restorative justice, community empowerment and political participation -- as well as theological engagement 'beyond the church of power', which is one of our defining concerns.

Ekklesia is also working to develop alternative angles on humanitarian challenges in a globalised world, not least a positive approach to migration.
