Parkas, walking boots, and action for change: Sheffield’s urban poverty pilgrimage

For 14 years Church Action on Poverty in Sheffield has embarked on an Urban Poverty Pilgrimage.

Essentially, about 30 or so of its members – often dressed in parkas and wearing walking boots – turn out to tread the streets of Sheffield. On their journey, they visit food banks and other church-based poverty alleviation initiatives, to learn more about their work and how best they can help to promote and support it in their church communities and wider afield. Consequently, there is often a practical focus to the talks that they get to listen to, and to the discussions that follow.

This year, they have produced a summary paper on what they discovered. Click below to download the report.
