Going upstream: summer appeal 2018

“We are not just social service providers, we are prophetic interrogators for why so many people are hungry or homeless. We have to keep asking the ‘Why’ question: not just keep pulling bodies out of the river, but send people upstream to see who or what is throwing them in.”
Jim Wallis, Sojourners

Martin Green

Across the UK, churches are pulling increasing numbers of people ‘out of the river’ through food banks, debt advice centres, and other social action projects. But our task as Christians is also to go upstream to stop people being swept into poverty in the first place.

This is core to what Church Action on Poverty has been about since 1982, and the task is more urgent than ever. If you can, please support this vital work. A donation from you could support work like End Hunger UKYour Local Pantry, or Church of the Poor?
