Rooted in God’s life and love, we, the Faith and Justice Commission, come together to...

...be active in promoting JUSTICE, LOVE AND PEACE.
...identify the tensions experienced by people as they live their faith.
...support, nurture and celebrate each other.

In all our work, we attempt to use the methodology of the 'pastoral cycle', a prophetic, Christian way of examining the world and acting to change it.

This is what Yahweh asks of you: to act justly, love tenderly & walk humbly with your God” Micah 6:8

Opportunities for you to write or visit your MP in their local surgery to tell them why you have No Faith in Trident –Britain’s nuclear weapon system and why it should be scrapped. In 2006 the Catholic Bishops' Conference called the UK Government to set an example by decommissioning all UK nuclear weapons and so the plans for their replacement goes completely against our Bishops' call. (Hints to help with letter to MP)

lies we tell ourselves: ending comfortable myths about poverty  13 million people – including 3.6 million children – live in poverty in the UK today.
