Workshop registration open: Transforming injustice in UK austerity & poverty

A participatory workshop from our partners at the 'Life on the Breadline' project - challenging and reflecting on the Church’s aim to transform unjust structures of society in austerity Britain.

What are the different forms of poverty in the UK and how do they relate to each other? How can the Church be an effective agent for change in an age of austerity? How can the Bible and Christian tradition enable us to challenge structural injustice?

This participatory workshop on 13 September 2019 will revolve around small group discussion of these three questions that reflect on transforming unjust structures.

Speakers include:

  • the Life on the Breadline research team
  • Niall Cooper (Church Action on Poverty)
  • Helen Gale (B30 Foodbank)
  • Heather Buckingham (Trussell Trust)
  • Anthony Reddie (The Council for World Mission and the University of South Africa )
  • Paul Morrison (Joint Public Issues Team)

The workshop will take place at Elm Bank, Coventry University, Coventry CV1 2LQ.

Elm Bank is a short walk from Coventry train station and nearby bus stops. There is no public car parking at the venue, but on-street parking is possible a 10-minute walk away.

The workshop is free to attend but places are limited. Please register in advance.
