This film is part of the Church of England’s new Estates Evangelism strategy, which comes under their Renewal and Reform programme. It reflects the Church of England’s aim to see a thriving, growing, loving church on every significant social housing estate in the country – through new patterns of ministry, sharing good practice and encouraging leaders.

Having planted church@five in 2010, Helen’s vision is to see a worshipping community on every estate in London. She shares some of the highs and lows of living on a London estate and her church’s heart to welcome people just as they are.
