"The Centre’s history was born out of the 2001 disturbances, the 2001 census findings, 9/11 and 7/7 events. The Church of England nationally encouraged local diocese’s to engage with what became known as Presence and Engagement..

"The Centre’s first director was Revd Dr Andrew Wingate. On his retirement in 2010, Revd Dr John Hall arrived from a post in Coventry to take on the position.
