Geographical remit: 
National - Britain


To inspire and equip people to practise reconciliation and peace-making in their communities and lives


Based in the restored church of St Ethelburga in Bishopsgate (which was destroyed by an IRA bomb in 1993), the new Centre runs a wide-ranging programme of public and private activities, from visits by leaders and activists from areas of conflict around the world, through an extensive public education programme, to youth work and world music concerts. Since it opened in 2003, more than 60,000 people have visited the Centre, sharing stories, insights and skills in how people can build relationships across divisions of conflict, culture and religion.

As an independent Christian-led foundation, it welcomes people of all faiths and none and has a strong track record of innovative inter-religious work, based in the Tent, a remarkable bedouin meeting space in the heart of the City.

St Ethelburga's is entering a period of change, partly as a result of rapid growth over the last six years, and also because neighbouring building work will require partial closure of the Centre next year. The Trustees are seeking to extend our work through partnerships around the England and also in Northern Ireland and Israel/Palestine.

Central to this will be putting the organisation's finances and operational management on a stronger footing
