At the start of November 2018, Church Action on Poverty and our partners at ‘Life on the Breadline’ held a National Poverty Consultation in Manchester, drawing together many people in the churches who are involved in tackling poverty and injustice. At an opening panel on ‘Church of the Poor’, campaigner Stef Benstead shared these thoughts on Christian responses to poverty.
How has austerity affected Christian engagement with poverty? Church Action on Poverty is partnering in a major new research project to explore this question. Research Associate Dr Stephanie Denning introduces the project.
