Freedom… compassion… justice… speaking truth to power… trust… commitment​​

Church Action on Poverty works to put gospel values into practice:

  • We believe in freedom from oppression, equality, hope for a better and a fairer world

  • We are all made in the image of God and therefore all people are of intrinsic equal value; we believe in inclusivity, respect and care for others, and responsibility

  • We affirm people’s inherent power to generate solutions to the problems they face; to have their own voice, ownership and power, and a right to learning

  • We believe in naming, fighting and challenging injustice, being prophetic, and speaking truth to power

  • We believe in establishing trust, and valuing people’s unique contribution and voice

  • We believe in going the extra mile; long-term commitment to communities, seeing it through and seeing change happen
