|Christian Churches Network of London (CCNL) has been taking steps to help each church connect with our city in a way that can make a big difference.Its latest effort is the Community Initiatives Program, headed up by Dale Mackness. This program will be holding organizational meetings in London neighbourhoods, attended by city staff, church representatives, and members of the neighbourhood. Argyle and Westmount are planned to hold the initial meetings, with a goal of reaching all neighbourhoods by the end of 2015.In January 2012, London’s Mayor, Joe Fontana, gave his perspective on CCNL’s initiative to encourage churches to become more involved in serving the City. He also shared how churches can be a part of the city’s new neighbourhood initiative.CCNL continued the discussion in March 2012 and heard from several City of London department managers. Lynne Livingstone explained the vision for stronger neighbourhoods, gaving an update on the progress being made, and outlined specific areas and projects where the City needs assistance from the churches.|
