Southampton is blessed with councillors and council employees deeply committed to the welfare of the people of our city. They work creatively to do the best they can with the resources they have.
Over the years there have been ways in which the council and church projects have worked together, but in 2013 we looked for ways to work together better. The coming together of churches under the banner of Love Southampton has provided a way for us to present ourselves collectively to the council. We can make it easier to show what we are doing to serve the city, find ways to improve our collaboration and also look for new ways to meet the challenges we are facing.
Of course, we are not the only people in Southampton who care about the city and there are many other projects that exist for the good of people in the city. Love Southampton provides a way for the churches to communicate and collaborate with organisations such as charities and businesses, in addition to the council.
