When I need a neighbour, are you there?



Free biblical resources to explore aspects of poverty in the UK

With poverty in the spotlight in the run-up to the general election, ROOTS for Churches has teamed up with Church Action on Poverty and The Consultative Group on Ministry among Children to produce biblically-based materials to help Christians reflect on and respond to this issue.

As well as providing awareness-raising facts about poverty in the UK, the pack helps us to explore themes of generosity, justice, disadvantage and judgement through three Bible passages.

These resources can be used in churches, youth groups, and schools - to help Christians respond to Jesus’ call to speak up for the most disadvantaged in our society. Please could you share these free resources as widely as possible within your denomination's or organisation's networks?
