Poverty Focus for Transfiguration Sunday

Tuesday January 8 2019


Church Action on Poverty (CAP) is hoping that churches will be inspired by the story of the Transfiguration to make a difference on Sunday March 3.

That Sunday, designated by CAP as Church Action on Poverty Sunday, is the final Sunday before Lent – celebrated in many churches as Transfiguration Sunday, when congregations hear the Gospel account of how Jesus and his mission were revealed in a new light.

CAP is hoping that churches will use the Transfiguration story as a starting point to looking at things in a new light; listening to the stories of people in poverty and using the dedicated worship materials to reflect and pray for change.

Churches are also invited to hold a collection or a soup lunch for CAP’s work.

CAP is a national ecumenical Christian social justice charity, committed to tackling poverty in the UK, and working in partnership with churches and people in poverty themselves.

Resources for CAP Sunday, including a worship and fundraising pack, Bible studies and preaching ideas are available on their website.
