This year’s Church Action on Poverty Sunday will be on 26 February in 2017.
This corresponds with ‘Transfiguration Sunday’ in many churches marking the Transfiguration of Jesus.
On Church Action on Poverty Sunday 2017, you are invited to help transform and transfigure the Church. Pope Francis and other church leaders have called on Christians to build communities that put the poorest first. Church Action on Poverty Sunday 2017 is an opportunity for churches to respond to that call – to work together to become a truly ‘poor Church for the poor’.
Ideas for the day include:
- Hold a collection or soup lunch.
- Use the Church Action on Poverty worship materials to reflect and pray for change.
