Why is the Church engaged?
The Church seeks to transform unjust structures of society that perpetuate human hunger, poverty, injustice, the abuse of human rights and the destruction of the environment. Our efforts are an expression of solidarity with and accountability to those who suffer from injustices and violence.
How is the Church engaged?
Transforming unjust structures of society requires continuous discernment, intellectual analysis, spirituality and active engagement. The Church aims to influence the policies and practices of governments, institutions, corporations and our own communities in order to bring about a more just, peaceful and sustainable world. We work with professional bodies, NGOs and Church partners both at home and abroad.
