The purpose of the Commission is to:

  • Promote awareness, discussion  and action throughout the Leeds diocese about the ‘Just’ Gospel response to the key issues of today
  • Advise the bishop of Leeds in respect of key Social Justice issues
  • Celebrate the work  that so many people in the diocese are already doing to bring about God’s Reign of Justice and Peace

FAMILY POVERTY: A DIOCESE ACTS

Project Logo

Living on a low income is difficult – even more so for families. What are the problems experienced by families on low income?  What can we (as Church) do about it – given the importance that we attach to family values?

These are the key questions explored in a set of 5 two hour parish-based workshops.

Could you host a set of meetings in your parish or Churches Together group?
