Christianity, Poverty and Politics in the 21st Century City

Important anti-poverty Advent witness from the Church Times. Will the government listen to prophetic voices amidst the white noise of Brexit? A big question for our @CTPSR_Coventry #BreadlineResearch @churchtimes https://t.co/3H9fPHKcY8 from @churchtimes
Our emerging #BreadlineResearch on the @ESRC project Life on the Breadline, based at @CTPSR_Coventry is discovering the same tragic picture highlighted here by @jrf_uk. A question we are asking is what impact this has for Christian action on poverty in the UK.
