SHINE is a community organisation working out of St Stephen’s Church in the heart of West Bowling Bradford.

SHINE stands for Social, Health, Inner, Natural and Economic wellbeing. We believe that people need to thrive in all these areas for a fulfilled life.


The goal of SHINE is to create a vibrant community-hub in West Bowling that reaches the socially excluded, brings the community together, and delivers a wide range of life-enhancing services and opportunities to people of all ages, faiths and ethnicities. It seeks to create a new story for West Bowling. A story that binds people together and helps restore our community in body, soul and spirit.

Our activities and projects have been growing for more than half a decade, and now we are helping over 200 men, women and children every single week.
