Abundant Life - Since January 2017, the Congregational Federation has been involved in an important project with member churches of the Council for World Misson in the Caribbean and Europe regions, to reflect on and help to tackle the critical challenges of economic, social and ecological injustice. It is important that churches play a key role in tackling these challenges, so every human being can flourish with ‘life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10).

The project is under the heading of a colloquium called New International Financial and Economic Architecture (NIFEA).
“We believe that inequality is itself a challenge to kingdom values and desire a structure that requires all the wealthy to be contributing to the good of the whole of society. We must desire an ‘Economy of Life’ that desires life in all its fullness for all God’s creation.”

The Abundant Life booklet is a key way that you and your churches can get involved in making changes in your church and community life, so all can live well. The Kingston Declaration

Transforming Poverty: a Bible Study from Church Action on Poverty - Six sessions for churches and house groups: use the film 'I, Daniel Blake' to engage with God’s heart for poverty in your community. Transforming Poverty is a course by Revd Gayle Greenway, a curate in the Diocese of Lichfield.
In six sessions, the course will bring church or house group members together to talk, think and pray about the struggles that local people, maybe including yourselves, have today or have had in the past because of having little money. Alongside this, it will help you look at how the Bible and your faith in Jesus guide you to respond to these issues. Download for free.

Dangerous Stories: a Bible Study from Church Action on Poverty - The Bible shows us again and again that God is on the side of the poor and the oppressed. People on the margins.
