From the outset the Megachurches and Social Engagement in London project was designed to bring churches and policymakers into dialogue, in the hope of developing some best practice guidelines and insights into how civil society and the church might work together more effectively in the field of social engagement.

This short policy briefing highlights some of the opportunities that we envisage arising from our research. All the ideas and claims summarised here are evidenced fully in the research and will be available for evaluation in the forthcoming academic publications. The project team would be glad to discuss these ideas more thoroughly with any policymakers who find them of potential interest - please contact us at
