Ekklesia (UK)

Ekklesia is an independent, not-for-profit thinktank which examines the role of religion in public life. It advocates transformative ideas and solutions rooted in theological thinking and dialogue with others. It also looks at the operation of beliefs and values in society and politics more widely. A widely-referenced source of authoritative comment, policy ideas and news briefing on a range of contemporary issues related to religion and politics, Ekklesia has been listed among the UK's top 20 think tanks by The Independent newspaper. It has been profiled by the BBC, in London's Evening Standard and Daily Telegraph, and has been described by The Times as 'influential'. Ekklesia now has one of the most widely read religious and current affairs websites in Britain according to Alexa/Amazon rankings. It is also cited and consulted regularly by media and researchers across the world. It receives more visitors to its website than several major political blogs. The web is the hub of what we do. Ekklesia engages in original and cooperative research and analysis, provides a syndicated daily international and domestic news briefing service and e-bulletin; commissions opinion polls, cooperates with academic institutions, offers analysis of upcoming events to journalists and policy makers; distributes a weekly 'Thinking for a Change' e-journal; produces publications and papers on key policy questions; contributes distinctive opinion to print, broadcast and web media; sponsors conferences and events; has a team inputting into the blogosphere; and provides consultancy and workshops combining practical and theoretical knowledge.
