In this compelling tour of five Big Local areas, Stephen Bates interviews a range of people about how faith motivates and sustains their involvement in community. From Middlesbrough to Walsall he reveals the common ground shared by people from different religious traditions, as well as the deep commitment they bring to the dual roles of active citizen and believer.
People are suspicious of faith groups in communities. If you become too open about your faith you risk losing people. But getting people out of their homes and working for the good of the area is important. We are trying to do this together.
