What We Do

Churches are jam-packed full of potential and Cinnamon can help to release it. Each year we interact with more than 1,000 local churches the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland. We conduct research, provide advice, deliver training courses and help churches start social action projects that transform their communities.



We make it as easy as possible for local churches to set up sustainable social action projects, find funding and get the right support and training to make a positive impact.

We find effective grass-roots, social-action projects and help them develop so they can be replicated through churches across the country to help even more people.

We create confidence in the work of the church on a broader scale, by conducting research and organising events that show the real impact church-led projects can make.

More tools for churches


Our Cinnamon Advisors are on hand to support churches who want to get more involved in social action.


Cinnamon Micro-Grants of £2,000 are available in some areas to help churches start Recommended Projects.


We run training days across the country to equip volunteer leaders with the skills and knowledge to run successful social action projects.

What our partners say

"Thanks to Cinnamon and other bodies like it, this is not mere do-goodery. It is seeking to find best practice and put it into action in the most professional way that can be imagined."

Most Rev Justin Welby
Archbishop of Canterbury

“Cinnamon Network is one of the most exciting Christian initiatives to have arisen in recent years. It has enabled thousands of people of faith to get involved in social action projects on the ground where they live, work and worship.”

Lyndon Bowring
Executive Chairman, CARE

“Cinnamon Network is making an important contribution to the collaborative work between churches and police forces. These partnerships are a great example of community policing and it is encouraging to see the extent of the work and the plans to grow it.” Sara Thornton first Chair of the National Police Chiefs' Council."
