or, for a brief summary  watch the video and read below.

What do we want?

We want our leaders to act on the four big issues that mean so many people do not get enough food:

Aid
Enough Food For Everyone IF
we give enough aid to stop children dying from hunger and help the poorest families feed themselves.

Tax
Enough Food For Everyone IF
governments stop big companies dodging tax in poor countries.

Land
Enough Food For Everyone IF we stop poor farmers being forced off their land and grow crops to feed people, not fuel cars.

Transparency
Enough Food For Everyone IF
governments and big companies are honest and open about their actions that stop people getting enough food.

Together, we can make IF happen.

Quinta 2013

Our church holds a weekend away every two years, in the beautiful grounds of The Quinta, a Christian centre in Shropshire (about an hour away).  This year’s weekend away will be 19th-21st April.  The title of the weekend is “Living Grace – Receiving and giving”.  Our guest speaker is Reverend Simon Thorburn, who was vicar at Saint Paul’s in the late 1980s.

The cost of the weekend has been cut this year!  Booking forms are now available in church.

Speak to Greta or Marion for more information.

It is our intention that no-one should feel prevented from attending on cost grounds.  If you would like to attend, but feel cost would be an issue, please don’t hesitate to speak to Greta, Marion or Jim.
