Faith in Action is a group of people from churches and community organisations who explore ways of improving ministry by closely connecting to their local community using Assets Based Community Development Principles (ABCD).
What is Asset Based Community Development?
ABCD is an approach which focuses on discovering and developing the strengths and assets of everyone in the community. This is different from other models which focus on what people need. ABCD is a strengths-based approach. Patrons of a soup kitchen will help prepare and serve the meal rather than just receive it.
Please contact us if you want some assistance in running a process or group experience. We are here to back you in as a sounding or board or with ideas.
Faith in Action is one way that Uniting Communities cooperates with congregations to make a positive difference to the communities in which they are located.
