Faith in Business

Faith in Business is a project concerned with relating Christian faith to the world of work, notably that of business, and has been in existence since 1989. Based at Ridley Hall College in Cambridge, it developed out of a twin concern that the concept of lay ministry is too often restricted to what lay people can do for the church (rather than taking in the work which occupies most of their time), and that the church's attitude to business savours too much of indifference, suspicion or hostility. In contrast, Faith in Business affirms the role of business in God's purposes, and explores the application of Christian faith and values in business. It seeks to encourage lay Christians to be faithful disciples in demanding working contexts and also equips those training at Ridley for ministry with business people. It holds Conferences on aspects of faith and business, co-publishes Faith in Business Quarterly with the Industrial Christian Fellowship, and publishes a God on Monday, a weekly blog.
