When & Where
Cinnamon Network began emerging in 2010 in response to growing social need, public sector reform, increasing recognition of the role of voluntary organisations and the economic cuts. 50 Christian CEOs and leaders were challenged to consider how the Christian community could deliver more local transformation at national scale and to do so at speed. We met together at The Cinnamon Club in London and Cinnamon Network was born.
Our aim is to serve the nation by enabling people and resources to transform their communities and help those in social need. We do this by championing brilliant church-based social action, by building partnerships between churches and civic groups, and by delivering actionable research to enable growth.
