We are relational body of churches, ministries and organisations, bringing Kingdom transformation to people, neighbourhoods and institutions in Southwark through united prayer and action
We seek to facilitate key leaders in their Christian service so that Southwark might experience spiritual renewal and social transformation in every walk of life; in Church, in families, in education, law, media, health-care, business, local government and the arts.
SFJ works by means of an informal network of friendships. The SFJ steering committee represent many denominations, church streams and culture groups throughout Southwark. Steering group members are also part of regional groups in Bermondsey or Dulwich, Peckham or Camberwell, Elephant & Castle or Rotherhithe. We network and pray together with the aim of responding coherently to the changing needs of Southwark.
Southwark is a borough of well over 300,000 people, which is larger than most towns in the UK. There are over 250 churches in the borough, some large, many small.
SFJ is a Charity (number 1168131) under the name Transform Southwark. The Steering Group facilitates the many borough initiatives and connects local networks of pastors, ministers and other church leaders that meet for prayer and mutual support in different parts of the borough. There are several local networks that meet in different corners of the borough and members from each of these come together to form the steering group.
