Introducing the Jellicoe Community

Welcome to the Jellicoe Blog!  It describes the work of a community of interns who live and work in East London.  Drawn from Oxford, Notre Dame and East London Universities, they work with congregations in London Citizens – the capital’s broad-based community organisation.  Community (or citizen) organising is the movement which inspired and formed Barack Obama, and is having an increasing impact in the UK.

The community is a project of the Contextual Theology Centre, and is inspired by the life and witness of Fr Basil Jellicoe, priest and social reformer.

UPDATE: Plans are now afoot to create a broader Jellicoe Community, building on and extending beyond our internship programme.
