MitE is concerned about quality of life in the workplace and for the unemployed. We believe in embracing Christian principles in business and that even in the hectic and stressful world of work it is important to make time for pause and thought.

We provide the organisation and support for Chaplains who are committed to ministry at the interface of faith and work. Our Chaplains work in the Retail, Commercial and Voluntary Sector across Merseyside. Their role is to listen, support, care and question. Chaplains are there for the individual and the organisation regardless of faith or belief. We currently have Chaplains at Local Solutions, Liverpool John Lennon Airport, Clayton Square Shopping Centre, Church Street and St. John’s Market in Liverpool; Birchwood Business Park, Golden Square and the Market in Warrington and St Helen’s Town Centre.

Trustees are nominated to serve on MitE Council by churches in the Merseyside Region or are co-opted.

Mission in the Economy is funded by churches in the Mersey Region and by host organisations in the Private and Public Sectors.
