Ekklesia is an independent, not-for-profit British think tank which examines the role of religion in public life and advocates transformative theological ideas and solutions. Jonathan Bartley and Simon Barrow were the founders and co-directors,[1] with Bartley leaving in 2016[2] and subsequently becoming co-leader of the Green Party of England and Wales.

Ekklesia's approach to religion has led to some criticism. A columnist for The Daily Telegraph called it the "smuggest think tank in Christendom".[3]
