Church Action on Poverty annual conference 2016.

Churches and communities across the UK are taking part in Good Society conversations – exploring what must be done to build a Good Society, listening especially to voices from poor and excluded communities.

At the conference, participants from those conversations will join Church Action on Poverty’s supporters to share visions of the Good Society – and discuss how they can work together to make those visions real.

The conference takes place at Stoke-on-Trent Civic Centre on Saturday 30 January 2016.

For more information and booking, see the Church Action on Poverty website.
