Church Action on Poverty - Church on the Margins

In the next phase of our Church on the Margins programme, we wish to build on the positive stories of hope that have been identified through participatory research –
creating space for people experiencing poverty and marginalisation to reclaim dignity, agency and power within their own congregations and communities, and at a wider level within institutional church. The programme will seek to enable transformational change to take place in multiple local communities across the UK, facilitated and funded by the URC, in which local people, communities and churches are enabled to reclaim dignity, agency and power together. This will contribute to wider thinking with the churches as to the role that institutional Christian bodies (nationally and locally) can play in investing a long-term social movement building, in which people and communities experiencing poverty and marginalisation are able to exercise leadership and agency.
