I am very pleased that the Doorsteps initiative is gathering churches together with other voluntary and public sector organisations to ask the fundamental question “what can we do together?”

I am grateful to Viva for doing this work of mapping and surveying the county and asking the questions to see what churches are doing for children, young people and families. This is a good start.

I commend this report to you and hope it will lead to a new era of partnership working between churches and wider society.
