Mission

Based on the South Coast, our purpose is to communicate, challenge and share good practice in Chaplaincy and other core activities.

Faith communities have an  enormous part to play in the creation of the fabric of society.

IBEX supports churches and the community by looking at both ends of the spectrum: from a faith and economic perspective.
