Churches Together in England (CTE) have just published a timely statement on poverty and politics that you may be interested in; especially, as we enter an election year.
Senior leaders from churches and charities have called on politicians to take urgent action on rising poverty in the UK and around the world. They say: “We believe that poverty is a scandal, the root causes of which have been neglected by our political leaders in the UK Parliament for too long. As this new year begins, the cost of living scandal is clearly not over for the poorest people in the UK. Around the world, poverty holds too many individuals and communities back from fulfilling their potential.” Senior Church and Christian Leaders 5/1/24
