Church and Society

“Learn to do good; seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow.” Isaiah 1:17

JPIT logo onlineChurch and Society supports and enables the United Reformed Church to live out the gospel in society, by challenging injustice and working for peace. It is part of the United Reformed Church's Mission Team and the Joint Public Issues Team (JPIT), an ecumenical partnership involving the United Reformed Church, the Methodist Church, the Baptist Union of Great Britain and the Church of Scotland. We:

  • help the Church to speak and act prophetically on key issues of justice and peace facing society

  • provide resources, campaigns and events that help people to make the links between faith, politics and social action, and respond appropriately.
