What should the goal of the economy be? Why isn’t our current system enabling people to flourish, especially as the cost of living crisis bites? Could a change in approach help us solve the climate crisis? What does our Christian faith have to say about the economy?

How Does Change Happen?
Have you ever wanted to make change but don’t feel like you know enough to try?
Perhaps you’ve recognised the biblical call to social justice but aren’t sure how to put it into action?
Or maybe you’ve been involved in campaigns in the past but are keen to be more effective going forward?
Then this is the small group resource for you.
Art of the Possible
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?
The Art of the Possible is a resource produced to help people to explore these questions.
It’s good to talk, but talking about things we disagree over can be difficult. ‘Conversation Welcome’ is a resource designed to equip churches to have health conversations about the sort of society we wish to live in and to leave to future generations.

As Christians, how can we speak truth and strive for justice in this area? What policies would make a meaningful difference, and how can we campaign for these, as well as making change happen in our own communities?
