Our belief that poverty can be ended is based on our understanding of scripture and the work of a creative, loving God. ‘Let us love, not in word or speech but in truth and action’ (1 John 3:18).
May’s Mission of the Month is Christian Aid
Christian Aid is partnership of people, churches and local organisations committed to ending poverty worldwide. We are part of this!
We stand together with our global neighbours. Together we can create a world where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty.
Everything we do is in response to God’s gift to the world, of his son Jesus Christ. Jesus promised ‘good news’ for the poor and ‘freedom’ for the oppressed, calling us to action.
Jesus called his followers to ‘love God and love your neighbour’. Through his life and teaching, his death and his resurrection, he inspired his followers to love God, love their neighbours and long for justice.
Our faith in God, and in his loving relationship with us, gives us confidence and hope that poverty can be ended, despite all that might stand in the way.
