Christianity, Poverty and Politics in the 21st Century City
Life on the Breadline is a three year multi-disciplinary ESRC-funded project analysing the nature, scope and impact of Christian engagement with urban poverty in the UK in the context of austerity since the 2008 financial crisis.
Love is born again in a borrowed room in Bethlehem, the 'house of bread'. God's solidarity with all who live in borrowed rooms or depend on foodbanks for their bread in austerity Britain. This is why our @CTPSR_Coventry Life on the Breadline #BreadlineResearch matters so much.
One of the many reasons why our @CTPSR_Coventry Life on the Breadline is so important. So much for Boris's 'levelling up'. Faith groups are responding to poverty but do they need to do more or to do what they do differently? #BreadlineResearch https://www.theguardian.com/society/2020/dec/09/covid-driven-recession-likely-to-push-2m-uk-families-into-poverty?CMP=share_btn_tw
