Social Justice

   The Big Shift Campaign - Prudence the Pig Poster

We support social justice campaigns by Christian Aid, Tearfund and Global Justice Now. We pray, learn about and take action on issues affecting worldwide poverty, such as climate change, debt and tax. Although we don’t hold regular meetings we share information by email. A small group plans events periodically which are often attended by the wider church. These have included a nature walk to call attention to the need for a UK government energy plan, a hunger lunch, taking collections in special services and lobbying our MP.

Recently the church participated in Christian Aid’s Big Shift campaign using ‘Prudence the Pig’ to collect petitions which were taken to our bank in Hexham, along with a letter asking the bank to shift investment from fossil fuels to sustainable energy.

"And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."  Micah 6:8

We believe these campaigning actions are really important and a vital part of our Christian lives, working towards a fairer, better world for all people, as the Lord requires us. For further details or to be added to the circulation list please contact Alison Page.
