This report from the Centre for Theology and Community explains why the Church has a vital role to play in addressing the housing crisis. It includes the voices of those challenged by London’s housing crisis, describes the place of land and housing in Christian theology and identifies practical responses local churches can make.
‘It is impossible to work for social justice in London today without addressing the issue of housing. The progress made by community organising campaigns on the Living Wage and responsible lending will be jeopardised if the poorest residents of our city are priced out of their neighbourhoods by soaring housing costs’, comments Canon Dr Angus Ritchie, Director, Centre for Theology and Community.
