New Church Action on Poverty group launches in Reading

Reading Town HallWe’re delighted to announce the launch of a new local Church Action on Poverty group, in Reading.

The Reading group of Church Action on Poverty will launch this autumn at their first meeting  on Tuesday 30 September at 7:00pm, at Park United Reformed Church, Palmer Park Avenue, Wokingham Road, Reading RG6 1DN.

The Reading group will campaign at local and national levels. It will work with local churches, charity groups and the local authority on issues of common interest. Any interested people in the area are invited to join the group at the launch meeting, to watch a short film about the work of Church Action on Poverty, explore individual hopes and aspirations for a better world, discuss campaigns or issues which the group would like to get involved in, and talk about how everyone wants to see the group develop. 

Group founder Salim Yakub said “I’m really excited about the launch of this group, because I think it will give the church community and others an opportunity to come together to help make a difference in the lives of many people in the community.”

The group is now recruiting new members.  If you or anyone you know would like to join, then please come along to the first meeting to find out more. You can get in touch with Salim on 07837 400 216 or
