Abstract:
This thesis explores a return of social and political horizons to the urban church through the political practices of community organising. Organising’s work is contextualised within the changing place of religion in society and Anglican parochial horizons in inner-urban areas. It provides a history of community organising in which its presence in England in recent decades is reflected upon. The social and political standpoint enabled by organising is discussed in relation to issues of embodiment in ecclesiology, liturgical and political theology. Connections between organising, liberation theology, the pluralist tradition, and aspects of Anglican social theology and ethics are also considered.
