During 2015, CUF and the University of Edinburgh’s Divinity School hosted a series of events funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

The series of four events aimed to bridge the gap between theory and practice, bringing together academics, clergy and practitioners to share their diverse experience and expertise on poverty-related issues.

This report is a synopsis of the four events, sharing summaries of the presentations delivered at each one. We hope that it will help to share the learning gained from the events and to encourage similar discussions around the country.
