There is overwhelming evidence of poverty and justice issues in London, including large scale problems in housing, fuel, and food poverty … and the problems are getting worse. The issues affect the low paid, the unemployed, carers and lone parents, refugees and asylum seekers, isolated elderly, and those facing long term mental and physical illness. The focus of Jesus’ public ministry was on those who were marginalised and excluded from the mainstream. If we genuinely want to follow Christ, we must face up to the uncomfortable challenges of an increasingly unequal society in our own day.

Launched in April 2015, Capital Mass is part of the Diocese of London’s response in partnership with Church Urban Fund in addressing the widening inequality that we see in London. It aims to engage and support every parish in the Diocese of London — which covers 18 local authority areas, including the City of London, and is home to 3.6 million people — in tackling poverty and the causes of poverty. Get regular updates via @CapitalMass.

If you or your parish are interested in issues of poverty and inequality and injustice in the wider world then please join one of our existing and developing programmes:
