Unlock Office Relocation
Well we would not have chosen this partciular year to relocate our Unlock Office but nevertheless that is what we have had to do. Our new postal address is: Unlock, 15 Station Road, Rotherham, S60 1HN. E-mails remain as they were and the new telephone number is 01709 380 318.
To protect our staff The Unlock Office will be running on an even more part time basis than usual for most of the rest of 2020. Do Please continue to contact us as usual, (you can snail mail, or e-mail and there's an answerphone service) it may just take us a little longer to respond. We hope that things will be able to return to 'normal' sometime early in 2021.
No current vacancies.

Unlocking the Prodigal Event and Resource.
An Unlock Bible activity event based on Luke 15.
This took place at Windy Nook in Gateshead and again in Heanor in May 2018.

This is some of the feedback we received after the event:-
I chatted to the people who came and got overwhelmingly positive feedback. The gist of it was that it had taken a story they were very familiar with and helped them see it with fresh eyes - that it had helped it move from something they knew with their heads, to something that touched their hearts, and that it had provoked some deep and helpful conversations, arising out of the themes of the parable and the way it connected with their own lives and experiences.They saidit had been a lot of fun as well, and that the lunch was good!
I was asked some really good questions by church members, such as, "How can we do more of this, for ourselves?" and "How could we draw in those on the edges of the church, who don't already know the stories in the Bible, for something a bit like this?" I look forward to exploring what the answers to those questions might look like, in the months to come!
Our Lent course has had a very strong Unlock influence and it's been such a great experience.We are a church full of very practical, down to earth people who tend to be quite private about what goes on inside them and not have huge amounts of confidence.Unlock hasenabled usto share our experiences of prayer and God in a much moreopenway.That, in turn has led to a new courage and willingness to pray for and with one another, which makes me a very humble, grateful, happy Vicar indeed.

Next . . . We always interested to hear from new places who would like to develop some Unlock work. We focus on urban commiuties. Contact the National Office if you want to know more.
Working with Theological Colleges
Unlock is in partnership with the Queen's Foundation, Birmingham , and is willing to explore the possibility of partnerships with other Theological Colleges and Ministry Training Programmes in the UK, particularly in regions where we already have local projects established.
The next Unlock London Walk will be on Saturday 28th April 2018 in Tottenham and Harringay.
The 2021 walk, due to take place on April 24th will now be replaced with another 'Virtual' walk, as we did in 2020. The 2021 virtual walk, in the Lambeth, Southwark and City of London areas, will be available online and by post from April 18th 2021 onwards.
We really hope that by 2022 we can get back to the real thing!
Below is the 'Virtual' walk we provided in 2020
Unlock's 'Stay at Home' London walk 2020 activity packs are available here http://www.unlock-urban.org.uk/support_walk.php
The 2020, Tower Hamlets walk was offered to walkers as an online/paper resource in April 2020. It includes pictures, information about the churches on the route and Bible reflections.
We are dependent on the income from the Unlock London walks for around 30% of our annual funding, and without that income Unlock will not be able to continue its valuable work; so we really need you to donate anyway, just as if the 2020 & 2021 walks were still happening. We hope that the online version of these walks will encourage you to do that.
