'From Lament to Hope' on Poverty Sunday

Wednesday August 10 2022

Christians Against Poverty is inviting churches to move from ‘lament to hope’ in the face of rising poverty this autumn.

Research earlier this year showed that nearly two thirds of people in poverty feel lonely or fearful, and faith groups this week called for more help for the poorest people who are sinking further into poverty.

On CAP Sunday (October 16), churches are urged to reflect on and respond to debt and poverty, celebrate the work that God is doing through CAP and asking how He is calling us to respond to the cost of living crisis as it impacts the most economically vulnerable. Free video, sermon and prayer resources will help churches discover what it means to extend their hands to people in debt and poverty, and guide them towards a hope-filled future.
