Churches take part in Challenge Poverty Week

Churches across Scotland are taking part in Challenge Poverty Week next week (1-7 October).

Specifically designed worship resources have been produced by the Priority Areas team at the Church of Scotland for use by all and they are available here

Videos have also been produced for each day of Challenge Poverty Week, exploring solutions that challenge poverty, available for use here They focus on a variety of issues such as employment, income, education, health, crime, access, and housing.

If your church is involved in activities that challenge poverty over this week, please contact SCPO so that it can be included as part of the national campaign. The national calendar of activities happening over Challenge Poverty Week can be seen here

Challenge Poverty Week can also be followed via the SCPO Twitter account @SCPO_ and on the SCPO website here where we will keep you up to date with activities.
