Power, Poverty And The Church

Back To Top

How can we build a movement of Christians committed to tackling poverty in this country? And how can we help churches to engage more effectively with those in power?

Organised jointly by CUF, Church Action on Poverty and St John’s Waterloo, this workshop brought together church leaders, activists and anti-poverty charities from across denominations to begin to address these questions.

To stimulate debate, we asked three prominent Christian social thinkers to share their views and experiences and the event was chaired by The Revd Helen Dawes, Deputy Secretary for Public Affairs at Lambeth Palace.
