Welcome to the Dirty Hands website. Its aim is to encourage individual Christians and groups of people to get their hands dirty (not necessarily literally, but possibly so) by serving their local communities, with a particular focus on activities in Northamptonshire, by sharing ideas and information on forthcoming events, case studies, relevant research and other organisations who are doing similar things. Although it is aimed particularly at Christians, anyone of any faith or none is very welcome to visit its pages too, of course.

What’s Happening

The site is still new. It hopefully nevertheless already contains some useful information – and please feel free to provide other material by using the ‘Contact Us’ page,
