Growing Good Toolkit

The Growing Good Toolkit, developed by CUF, is designed to help churches connect the dots between social action, discipleship, and growth. Our aim is equip churches to be faithful and fruitful in their communities. The toolkit is based on the insights of the GRA:CE project, a three-year in-depth study of churches across England.

Growing Good consists of six interactive sessions for churches to explore themes like presence, hospitality, and participation. Each session includes a biblical reflection, a short film, a group activity, and space for prayer.

Churches Together guide to Racial Justice Sunday

Churches Together Britain and Ireland have created an excellent resource around Racial Justice Sunday, including both worship and liturgical materials, and reading resources. Produced by a veritable all-star cast of Black and Global Majority contributors, this resource will provide "churches, congregations, parachurch groups and individuals with information, ideas and activities that enable them to continue the conversations that may emanate from Racial Justice Sunday".

Grief and loss

Grief and Loss Workshop

This workshop, developed by Core Member Transforming Notts Together, offers an opportunity for those in your church to understand more about Grief and Loss and its impact, particularly as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. It is not designed for those currently experiencing grief and loss directly, but rather for those who will be able to support them. Areas covered include what to do, what not to say as well as looking ways that you could support those in your community, further resources and signposting suggestions.


The workshop is typically delivered in two parts, with a break in between. You will find notes for the facilitator within the 'notes' section of the slides.

Places of Welcome

Developed and grown through the Together Network, Places of Welcome is a network of local community groups providing their neighbourhoods with places where all people feel safe to belong, connect and contribute. A Place of Welcome offers your neighbourhood a place where everyone can go for a friendly face, a cup of tea and a conversation if and when they need it. It's easy to join the network and become a Place of Welcome, whether you already have an existing drop-in style activity or you would like to set up a new Place of Welcome in your community. Our Together Network Members support Places of Welcome all around the country and help people to set up new ones.

Visit the Places of Welcome website to find out more.

Know Your Church, Know Your Neighbourhood

Originally designed by the Diocese of Birmingham, KYCKYN is a facilitated process to help churches think about themselves in relation to the local communities they seek to serve, and make prayerful and informed decisions about their mission in those communities.

Transforming Lives Together (Chester) and Transforming Notts Together have both adapted this course for their respective areas, and have played a considerable role in shaping the central Together Network version below.

CUF parish deprivation lookup tool

Ever wondered about the makeup of your parish community, and how it compares to others locally?

The Church of England Research and Statistics Unit, in collaboration with CUF, has created two different ways to view really detailed information about your parish's demographics, poverty level, life expectancy and more.

You can look up your parish individually with the CUF Lookup Tool.

Alternatively, there is a map version of the tool here.
