Church Action on Poverty Sunday


“For churches, Jesus initiated the act of making visible those who were overlooked.” (Kathy Galloway)

Voices from the Margins logoThroughout his ministry, Jesus listened to people who were on the margins of his society. He made visible those who were overlooked, and gave them hope.

Our churches are called to follow Jesus’ example: to listen to voices from the margins and make them heard, so that things can change.

That’s what Church Action on Poverty’s campaigns and projects are for. On Church Action on Poverty Sunday, we invite you to learn about them and lend your support.

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.

    Our worship and fundraising pack is available now - click the link below to download it.

    And do explore the other links below for videos and extra fundraising resources to use on the day.

    Follow us via email, Facebook or Twitter, and we'll let you know whenever new materials are added.

    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.
