The Proximity Network is a network of ministries and missionaries for every disadvantaged neighbourhood in our nation. We have now mapped over 4000 ministries to the poor across the UK but we still have a way to go. We have done this in two phases;
Phase One: Map those ministries and missionaries actively working in the UK’s most disadvantaged communities. These will be categorised in eight different ways based on the governments indices of deprivation statistics released in 2019 – Crime, Education, Housing, Food, Debt, Health, Employment and Community.
Phase Two: Create a web-based platform to seek to achieve three things:
RESOURCE: Offer those on the frontline the means to sustain and advance their ministry by providing relevant resources including blogs, vlogs, Bible reading plans, audio books, best practice application, neighbourhood exegesis resources, inspirational books, webinars and conferences.
RELATE: Provide members with a mechanism to interrelate, cross pollinate, share best practice and support and work more strategically together in partnership.
RELEASE: Establish a list of disadvantaged areas that appear to be under resourced and work strategically to send and support new ministries willing to fill the gaps.
I’d love you to help me in four ways;
1. Sign up on the website which is https://proximity.network/
2. Map your individual ministries
4. Share this with anyone you know who is ministering to the poorest in our nation
Your help is so appreciated!
