A new research partnership between the University of Roehampton and the Methodist Church (the founding body of Southlands) has been launched. Based in the Business School in Southlands College, the Susanna Wesley Foundation for Ministry, Management and Organisation aims to provide excellent research designed to have a real impact on faith communities.

The Foundation is a growing network of people and body of activity, which appoints Research Fellows, recruits PhD students, hosts research events and provides funding for projects and research staff. Their focus is held within the broad area of the organisational nature and needs of religious institutions, categorised under these four headings:

  • Learning for management, leadership and ministry
  • Work, life and identity
  • Diversity and transformation
  • Governance and leadership in faith communities

The SWF will be hosting its inaugural conference entitled on 2nd September. For details about how to submit proposals for papers or to book a place, please contact Sue Miller, Research Director.
