Poverty and Homelessness Action Week runs this year from 29 January to 5 February.
Our world is filled with barriers between people, barriers that prevent us from understanding one another. They are created by unfair benefits rules and inadequate wages; by the stigma attached to being poor or homeless; and by the growing gap between the richest and poorest people in our society.
At CEMC, we are working to break down the barriers. At Morning Worship on Sunday 29 January, Homelessness Sunday, there will be an opportunity to make donations in Gift Aid envelopes. Prayer cards will also be available.
For more information speak to Cilla McKenna, or visit the Poverty and Homelessness Action Week website, which has free resources including a prayer calendar for the week. The following prayer is from that website.
