Editorial:  This Bulletin draws together summaries of a number of books, or sections of books, which explore the relation between Christian faith and the economy. The aim is to provide an overview of recent attempts to address the question of what Christian faith has to offer in understanding and shaping the future of a global market economy which is currently failing in many ways to enhance the well-being of humankind ….

What helps disciples grow? Celebration and Exploration Event – St Pater’s Saltley Trust (working with the Kingdom at Work Project):  Over the last year, we have been working with churches across the West Midlands to find out how Christians talk about their own calling, growth and journeys of faith. We have surveyed over 1300 individuals in around 30 churches of different denominations. On 19 April, 2016 we will be reflecting on this research with an open event in central Birmingham. This is an opportunity to: • learn from and reflect on this research and allied work • explore the implications and possibilities for the individuals and the churches or networks to which they belong • consider next steps, for practice and research. For more information and to secure a place, contact: simon@saltleytrust.org.uk or fill in and return the booking form available at: http://www.saltleytrust.org.uk/events/
