RIP John Atherton


johnathertonWe were saddened to learn this week that John Atherton, a founding member of Church Action on Poverty, has passed away.

Canon Professor John Atherton helped to set up Church Action on Poverty in 1982, and had a long and successful career as a priest and academic theologian, working for the William Temple Foundation.

We will soon publish a tribute to John from people who knew him at Church Action on Poverty. In the meantime, you can read the William Temple Foundation’s obituary, or visit a Facebook page which is gathering tributes to him.
