Give, act and pray to ensure people on the margins are fully involved as we journey together

About this Event

We live in tough times. The pandemic continues to highlight the inequalities that sweep too many people into poverty. But we have also been reminded of the values that matter most: mutuality, compassion and community. As we journey forward together, we have the chance to do things differently. If we are to build a society in which everyone can live a full life, free from poverty, we must ensure the voices of people who are struggling to make ends meet are heard.

Join people around the UK in prayer, giving and action at this special online event for Church Action on Poverty Sunday, hosted by Church Action on Poverty North East and Sunderland Minster.

Share a vision for a society founded on compassion and justice, where all people are able to exercise dignity, agency and power.

We will share together in worship and prayer. People will share their stories of poverty and speaking truth to power. We’ll hear from decision-makers in the North East about how we can all work together to loosen the grip of poverty. And you’ll learn how you can be part of the movement tackling poverty through giving, action and prayer.
