Church Action on Poverty Sunday, 26 February 2017

Church Action on Poverty Sunday logo Poor Church Transfigured Church

On 26 February, raise funds to help transform and transfigure the church!

This Transfiguration Sunday, we ask: if our churches are to be communities that put the poorest first, how must we change? What must we let go of? What sacrifices are we called to make?
How can we allow God to transform us into what Pope Francis has called a “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.
