“Breaking the Barriers”

On Sunday 22nd January we marked Poverty and Homelessness Action Week with a special service exploring these themes through the bible, through poetry and image and the words of homeless people themselves.  Our speaker, Dr. Rob Furbey from Church Action on Poverty told us that research from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation shows that two-thirds of people in the UK think that poverty is either an inevitable part of life, or that poor people have themselves to blame for being poor!  You can read Rob’s sermon at faith and worship/sermons.
