David has pioneered the Centre for Contextual Theology’s (CTC) work on credit and debt, leading to the creation of the Church Credit Champions Network.

He was President of Oxford University Student Union. He also helped us to develop the Buxton Leadership Programme.

The Centre for Theology & Community (CTC) is based in the heart of east London. It grew out of local churches in membership of Citizens UK – the national home of community organising.

CTC works with a growing range of churches – including long-established congregations as well as new church plants. Its partner churches are from various denominations and styles. CTC believes churches in deprived and diverse areas have a vital role to play in the transformation of their communities and of wider society.

CTC equips churches through the practices of community organising, theological reflection and prayer. It also helps them to use their resources more effectively for their mission. CTC undertakes research to support their mission and share the lessons through publications, training and consultancy.
