Church Action on Poverty Sunday, 26 February 2017
Church Action on Poverty Sunday will be on 26 February in 2017 - marked in many churches as 'Transfiguration Sunday'.
At the Transfiguration, Jesus and his disciples were transformed, and sent back into the world with a renewed vision and mission.
On Church Action on Poverty Sunday, you can help transform and transfigure the church:Pope Francis and other church leaders have called on Christians to build communities that put the poorest first. Church Action on Poverty helps churches to respond to that call, so that we can work together to become a truly “poor Church for the poor”.
- Hold a collection or soup lunch – your donations can transform more churches through listening and engaging with people in poverty .
- Use our worship materials to reflect and pray for change.
Church Action on Poverty Sunday takes place each year on the last Sunday before Lent. It was part of Poverty & Homelessness Action Week until 2014.
