How we work
Christians Aware offers varied opportunities for listening encounter, learning and reflection, so that understanding and trust may grow between people who may then work together to overcome injustices. Some of our opportunities are planned with other organisations, such as Practical Action', Westminster Education Service, and Christian Aid.
