Touchstone has moved to new premises very close to the previous centre on Merton Road. The new building was completed in May 2018 and offers space for Touchstone’s growing work.
Touchstone is a 'listening community' with the vision of making safe places of hospitality where people who are radically different can listen to and with each other. Based in the heart of Bradford, Britain's most Muslim city, Touchstone has worked alongside diverse communities for 25 years.
The Touchstone Centre is sponsored by the Methodist Church in Britain and is open to all.
Touchstone is a Methodist initiative which started in the 1980’s following the closure of a large city centre Methodist church, the Eastbrook Hall. Inspired people decided to keep a city centre presence by buying two terraced houses opposite Bradford University. One of these houses is Touchstone and the other the home of the Methodist Minister who is the Team Leader. These houses have been used to enable a Christian presence in the city centre to continue and for interfaith work to flourish.
