Church Action on Poverty Sunday, 27 February 2022
Give, Act and Pray as part of the movement to unlock UK poverty
When people come together to reclaim their dignity, agency and power, we can make huge changes. In ourselves. In our communities. In the world.
Building a powerful movement to unlock poverty has never been more important. More and more people are being swept into poverty, robbing them of their dignity, agency or power over their lives.
The pandemic has brought into focus pre-existing inequalities in society. For all the talk of ‘building back better’, it has led to dramatic increases in poverty, food insecurity and debt.
To prevent more people being swept deeper into poverty, it’s vital that the people affected have a say. Now more than ever, churches and communities need to come together to reclaim dignity, agency and power.
On Church Action on Poverty Sunday, join with other churches across the UK in giving, action and prayer. Celebrate the transformational possibilities of people coming together to reclaim their dignity, agency and power.
Use our free worship resources to reflect and pray for change, and raise funds to enable more people like Penny to speak truth to power.
Follow the link below to register to take part. We’ll send you a link to the resource pack around the end of October so you can start planning your event.
Church Action on Poverty Sunday takes place each year on the last Sunday before Lent.
Speak up. Shout loudest. It’s the only way to be heard.
