Christian Aid exists to create a world where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty. We believe that poverty is not inevitable. We can make a difference.
Christian Aid has teamed up with partner organisations across the UK to empower churches to act on poverty in 2024.
We'll provide resources to help you and your church gain a deeper understanding of experiences of poverty and enable you to act in the run up to next year's general election.
It all starts with our 'Act on Poverty' Lent course.

New Lent course for 2024
With our partner organisations we have produced a series of six resource packs for small groups. Your church can use these for an Act on Poverty Lent Course in 2024.
We’re working with the Baptist Union, Methodist Church, United Reformed Church, Church Action on Poverty, The Trussell Trust, and others. Together we’ll enable churches and individuals UK-wide to gain a deeper understanding of experiences of poverty, local and global. We’ll be sharing stories of faith and activism that challenge the status quo. And we’ll be offering inspiration for actions big and small that we can all take to tackle poverty together.
Each pack contains:
- Guidance for a short Bible study
- Access to audio recordings of conversations featuring anti-poverty practitioners and activists, many with lived experience of poverty in the UK and worldwide
- Questions and prompts for small group discussion
- Inspiring videos from churches taking practical action on poverty
- A guide to simple steps your church can take to advocate for change
You can also use each pack as a standalone session to explore the issues most relevant for you.
