The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. - St John 10 v10

Pre 2019 Pandemic, the numbers of people experiencing one or more of the seven categories of poverty detailed in the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation were increasing. The impact of the pandemic has enlarged the numbers across the board.

Many parish churches have been working with families, schools, community groups, charities, council, ecumenically and with Council and Third Sector agencies to defeat the evil of poverty. As a new presbytery, how can we respectfully discern usefulness and potential impact, to complement and build on this work?

The 5 Marks of Mission include these commitments:
3. To respond to human need by loving service
4. To transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and pursue peace and reconciliation
5. To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth

Fife Presbytery Moderator’s Fund
Jane would like to use the Fund to get this work off the ground, so that it starts here and now and grows in the way we have yet to discover and for whom.

Joined by partners from Faith in Community Dundee, Fife Voluntary Action and Fife Council who can help us with a pilot into Spring 2022, and possibly beyond.

You are warmly invited to join this conversation
