Looking back on 2018: top five blog posts
As we start a new year, we revisit the posts on our blog that had the biggest impact in 2018.
These were the five posts that reached the largest audiences during 2018:
Look out for more news coverage like this in 2019, as our Poverty Media Unit works with other newspapers to tell the stories of people trapped in poverty around the UK.
A sermon by our Director Niall Cooper – why not draw on some of the ideas here if you’re preaching on Church Action on Poverty Sunday this March?
2018 was the year that Your Local Pantry, our model for a ‘social supermarket’ began to take off. We’re working with groups around the UK to set up Pantries that will give people access to good food while building community.
We are proud to use this blog to share stories from other members of the movement tackling poverty. This insightful analysis from our local group in Sheffield is just one example.
Some creative ideas from our collective of worship writers and theologians – unpacking the challenging idea of a ‘church of the poor’ and asking what it really means for our communities and congregations.
We hope you find something challenging or inspiring in these posts today as we look forwards to 2019! Thanks to everyone who read and shared them, helping to spread the word and get more people engaged in loosening the grip of poverty.
