We try to find ways to help people (ourselves included) tap into the deep resources of their faith or spirituality and thereby find sources of strength, purpose, and wisdom in their work lives.

This can involve exploring spiritual practices, engaging the Bible and the Christian tradition, and considering the connections between the practical or secular aspects and the spiritual aspects of our daily work.

NEW CURRICULUM FOR SMALL GROUPS

Transforming Work is a small group program and curriculum designed for people who take their work seriously and who have an interest in exploring how their own faith or spirituality might inform and support them in their work. The book includes twelve sessions, each one dealing with a practical work issue and including a passage of scripture that might offer a new point of view. Also included are commentary and questions designed to encourage reflection and discussion. It is suitable for use both within churches and in the workplace, and does not require any particular theological background. More Information

TOPIC HUBS

Finding Purpose

Can your work or your business be your calling? Finding meaning and purpose in your work can help you work with more purpose and passion, but this is not often easy. More

Spiritual Practices

Practices such as prayer and meditation can help us turn our attention towards God and connect with something deeper than ourselves. More

Workplace Stress

Work can certainly have a dark side — stress, fear, burnout, boredom, depression, anxiety, and other forms of pain. Our faith and spirituality can help us confront these problems and find ways to overcome them. More

Spiritual Aspects of Leadership

True leadership requires strength, courage, passion, and resiliency; it is not easy to remain true to a vision and to lead others towards its fulfillment. More

Markets, Enterprise and Wellbeing

Most people work in the private sector, and specifically for a business enterprise of some sort. We affirm the importance of work within these businesses and the contribution it can make to human well-being. More

The Role Of The Church

Churches can play an important role in helping people in the workplace tap into the deep resources of their faith and spirituality, especially if they recognize the importance of the daily work of the people in the congregation. More
