Christian responses to debt and financial exclusion

A research project of the Department of Sociology.

This project aimed to enable churches and other Christian groups in the North East of England and in London to discuss money issues in their local community. These discussions included reflecting on how the Christian faith may affect attitudes to money, and actions that Christians might take individually or collectively to respond to the identified money issues in their community. A resource has been produced to support local churches in taking action on these issues.

The research is being led by Dr Andrew Orton, and run in conjunction with David Barclay, the Faith in Public Life Officer of the Centre for Theology and Community. If you would like further information, please contact Andrew.

This research project is funded by the Leech Fellowship , and is taking place during 2015 and 2016, including events on 8-9th September to share the findings.
