Stand with people in poverty – get ready for Poverty & Homelessness Action Week 2014

Poverty & Homelessness Action Week“Remove poverty and justice, and the Holy Bible becomes a Bible full of holes”
(Jim Wallis)

Will you stand with us alongside people in poverty during Action Week 2014?

Throughout the scriptures, we see that God is always on the side of people who are poor, oppressed, homeless or marginalised.

In this time of economic crisis, people experiencing poverty and homelessness are being hit harder than anybody else by the recession and spending cuts. Churches are called to show God’s bias by standing alongside these people.

Each year, Church Action on Poverty works with Housing Justice and Scottish Churches Housing Action to organise a national week of giving, prayer and action on poverty and homelessness. Join us in 2014:

  • Use our free worship resources in your church on Homelessness Sunday (26 January) or Poverty Action Sunday (2 February).
  • Follow our prayer calendar through the week, with stories, prayers and ideas for action.
  • Hold a collection or fundraising appeal to support our work standing alongside those hit by the crisis and cuts.

Visit the Action week website now to find out more and download free resources.
