Issues, particularly political ones, aren’t always simple.
There are principles to think about, facts to analyse. As JPIT we carry out detailed policy research. We also produce resources making the key connection between our Christian faith and the issues of today.
These resources can be used in personal reflections, group bible studies, or even as a guide for worship within your Church.
How often do we open ourselves up to change? Especially at Christmas, when we are warmed by tradition and the familiar, and find comfort in people and homes we know well, we don’t always welcome things that will disrupt us from our norm.
Across the four weeks of Advent 2018, join us as we reflect on how we might be disrupted from our norm by seeking out transformational encounter.

Does politics have a role in the Church or is it a distraction from our mission? Is politics about compromise – what is possible – when our Christian faith is about truth?
At a time when a lot of people say they are turned off by politics, many in our churches are still concerned about what is going on in our world. What does politics mean for our faith – and what should our faith mean for our politics?
A Place to Call Home
‘A place to call home?‘ is our latest resource on housing; a set of six bible studies for small group discussion focusing on a range of issues around housing. It is produced by our four churches in collaboration with Housing Justice and Scottish Churches Housing Action.
Britain is facing a housing crisis. For some it means no home at all.
‘A place to call home?’ offers a biblical and theological framework to help us respond, as followers of Jesus, to the emerging issues that we might confront. It is written in the hope that through it, many local Christians, both as individuals and congregations, will be stimulated to consider their responsibilities as a gospel people, in the face of the housing issues that are becoming an increasing reality in the life of our nations. For some this might be through the combined endeavours of the faith community, for others by seeking to reflect the priorities of God’s kingdom through their day-to-day working lives.
As part of our spiritual life we often pray for the world around us, for those experiencing war, famine and poverty, as well as those with the power to change it. As JPIT we produce short prayers and reflections use in personal, group and church prayer times. We hope that you will find them to be a meaningful contribution to your spiritual life.
