Church Action on Poverty Sunday

“For churches, Jesus initiated the act of making visible those who were overlooked.” (Kathy Galloway)

Voices from the Margins logoThroughout his ministry, Jesus listened to people who were on the margins of his society. He made visible those who were overlooked, and gave them hope.

Our churches are called to follow Jesus’ example: to listen to voices from the margins and make them heard, so that things can change.

That’s what Church Action on Poverty’s campaigns and projects are for. On Church Action on Poverty Sunday, we invite you to learn about them and lend your support.
