Poverty Matters

Take time to review how your church is currently supporting people living in poverty and identify new ways to reach out.

Your church's response to poverty

Poverty Matters is a programme to help you and your church assess how you are currently supporting people living in poverty and then discuss and plan other ways to reach out to local and global communities.

The course is made up of six sessions and includes six short films which can be used over a series of weekly meetings or during an away day.  The content is based on the acclaimed book When Helping Hurts, produced by the Chalmers Centre.
