Church Action on Poverty is a national ecumenical Christian social justice charity, committed to tackling poverty in the UK. We work in partnership with churches and with people in poverty themselves to find solutions to poverty, locally, nationally and globally
Church Action on Poverty Sunday takes place each year on the last Sunday before Lent. This Transfiguration Sunday we ask: if our churches are to be communities that put the poorest first, how must we change? What must we let go of? What sacrifices are we called to make?
How can we allow God to transform us into what Pope Francis has called a "poor Church for the poor"?
Church Action on Poverty suggests 3 ways in which we can help to bridge the gap between the rich and the poor: Give, Act and Pray
Give: you can support ordinary people to do extraordinary things. For example, a donation of £10 to Church Action on Poverty could pay a week's expenses for someone in poverty being trained as a community leader; a donation of £25 could help pay for someone in poverty to travel to meet senior politicians in Westminster. Donate now
Act: get involved in Church Action on Poverty's email campaign to Close the Gap between rich and poor
Pray together for a transfigured church
