Churches show their Hunger for Justice at Christian Aid’s climate weekend

ON 18-19 October, churches across the UK will act and pray together for our world. Will the Oxford Diocese join them?

This is a powerful moment for Christians to come together and speak out against the injustice of climate change and pray for change. Churches will invite their local MP to an event or service to speak about their commitments to international development, and to hold them to account for their party’s promises on climate change.

The world’s poorest people – those communities who have done the least to cause climate change – bear the brunt of its chaos. Ever more erratic weather is increasing the incidences of storms and droughts, ruining harvests across the globe and eroding the gains made by poor communities as they try to work their way out of poverty.

Jessica Hall, Regional Coordinator from Christian Aid says, “The Hunger for Justice weekend gives churches the chance to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with sisters and brothers around the world, and encourages us all to take steps towards a safer, cleaner future.”

We put our hope into action as we all share the same prayer from Latin America, ‘Lord, to those who are hungry, give bread. And to those who have bread, give a hunger for justice’
