Our Social Justice Forum

The Social Justice Forum was launched on 2 November 2015 as a three year project, complementary to the Ministry and Mission committee, to act as a locus of active concern for social justice at St Anne’s. By social justice, we understand how all that we have been given is from God and is shared between us (the social element), and how fair or unfair these shares are (the justice element). Inequality, wealth and poverty are the underlying issues of social justice and we are trying to discern what God is asking of us, the people of St Anne’s Kew, now, in relation to these issues. We held twelve meetings, five focusing on refugees, one on asylum seekers, one on prayer and social justice and five on climate justice. We have followed a Franciscan pattern in our meetings of study, prayer and planning for action. Please see our Social Justice Forum for reports on our work and full details of our handouts.  Handouts 1-5 cover Refugees, handout 6 Asylum Seekers, handout 7 Social Justice and Prayer and handouts 8-12 Climate Justice.
