We know that churches and faith-based organisations have a reputation for 'doing good', but are there ways they could 'do good, better'?

Social innovation is the idea that there are ways churches and faith-based organisations can and should look to have a greater social impact.

Paul Bickley, who leads Theos' political programme, visits a Church in Stoke-on-Trent that's running a new kind of refugee drop-in, which goes beyond just food banks. It might have the answers of what Churches should be doing to face challenges of the modern world without a lot of money or resources.

This podcast is a preview of our upcoming report on Churches and social innovation, which will be released later this year.
