Transform Work began through the ministry and pioneering work of Revd Dr Clifford and Monica Hill who God first gave the vision of connecting Christians into groups to encourage and challenge one another to transform workplaces and nations. In 2003 Ros Turner joined the team and together they began to research what was needed to support existing workplace ministry. After a series of meetings with network leaders, workplace groups and christian workplace ministries, the team were encouraged to see a real need growing in the workforce to equip Christians to share their faith at work.
There was an excitement as leaders met and shared good practice across the professions, commerce and industry and in 2005 the Christian Workplace Forum was birthed, chaired by Dr Peter Carruthaers from the Agricultural Christian Fellowship with an advisory group made up of group leaders from the Lawyers Christian Fellowship, Christians in Property, Christian Medical Fellowship, Christians in Media, PR Christian Network and Association of Christian Teachers.
Since then, Transform Work has grown internationally and established a relational network of over 500 Christian Workplace Groups, 54 Christian Professional and Sector Groups and we also list 80 Christian Workplace Ministries.
Run by a core team of volunteers, ambassadors, associates and a small paid staff, we connect with workplace Christians everyday via email, whatsapp, across social media, and when invited, we regularly connect with Diversity and Inclusion Managers to represent and support Christian workplace group leaders. Our ambassadors and associates volunteer their expertise and network to bring continued support and strategy to workplace groups and offer pastoral care for Christians at work across the nation. And can be invited to speak free of charge at your workplace for evangelistic outreach events and/or training.
If you are not praying for your workplace - who is? If you’re not living for Jesus and being the hope of Christ in work - who else is going to do this?
God has put you there, but God doesn’t ask you to go it alone. Find other believers in your profession, sector or workplace and together you can make a difference for eternity.
