We have felt that as part of our learning and to better reflect the work we do, we want to change the name of our work to "Neighbours". We think this is a better reflection of our core value which is practising neighbourliness. We have developed the saying "we want to be friends to our neighbours and good neighbours to our friends." We keep asking how we can be better neighbours. We think neighbourliness is at the heart of the gospel.
