A participatory workshop challenging and reflecting on the Church’s aim to transform unjust structures of society in austerity Britain

What are the different forms of poverty in the UK and how do they relate to each other? How can the Church be an effective agent for change in an age of austerity? How can the Bible and Christian tradition enable us to challenge structural injustice?

This participatory workshop on 13th September 2019 will revolve around small group discussion of three questions that reflect on transforming unjust structures.

Speakers include: the Life on the Breadline research team, Niall Cooper (Church Action on Poverty), Helen Gale (B30 Foodbank), Heather Buckingham (Trussell Trust), Anthony Reddie (The Council for World Mission and the University of South Africa ) and Paul Morrison (Joint Public Issues Team).
