Partnership for Development

World Development Consultation held at High Leigh in February 2011

What Replaces Poverty?

What would it take to end poverty?
Money's clearly a vital part of the equation. But Christians have long recognised that poverty involves a complex mix of economic, social and spiritual needs - and that we can't end poverty without also thinking about how we lead lives and create societies that more closely model God's justice, righteousness and love.

Hope in a Changing Climate

World Development Consultation held at Central Hall, Coventry April 2016

Across the UK and across the world, Christians are working to care for God’s earth and for each other. Following on from the recent COP 21 Meeting and outcomes in Paris, it’s vital that the Church continues to play a role in the response going forward.

  • How does the Paris Agreement give support to our efforts?

  • Does it re-ignite hope that the most dangerous climate change can be avoided?

  • What needs to happen to strengthen what was agreed?

  • And how can we, sustained and guided by our hope in Christ, work in our churches and across denominational and national boundaries for a vision of a restored creation?
