Moderator and ex-Prime Minister to Speak at Poverty Hearing

Wednesday August 31 2022

Former Prime Minister Gordon Brown and the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, the Rt Rev Iain Greenshields, will give keynote speeches at a hearing into poverty in Fife next week.

The hearing in Methil, which has been organised by the Fife Presbytery Poverty Task Force, is an opportunity to hear about the experiences of people living in poverty. The morning will also include presentations from charities working with people in poverty, and organisations campaigning against poverty.

In the afternoon there will be a keynote speech and Q&A with Mr Brown, who has been outspoken in calling for the government to provide more help for people struggling in the cost of living crisis. The Moderator, minister of St Margaret’s Parish Church in Dunfermline, will close the event.

The hearing takes place on Saturday September 10 in Wellesley Centre, Methil, and is free to attend, with lunch and refreshments provided. Register at Eventbrite.


September's Life and Work is out now.
