We have a number of free resources available for you to download from this website, to help you spread the word or start campaigning for tax justice in your church or community.
Worship Resources - Our package of worship resources includes Sermons, Hymns, Prayers and Bible Studies, as well as outlines how your church can become a Tax Justice Congregation. It would work perfectly in tandem with Archbishop Justin Welby's Lent Book, Dethroning Mammon. The link above is to the whole package, but the contents of the package can also be downloaded individually below:
The resources include:
- Sermons (with study questions)
- Prayers and Creeds
- Short Biblical Notes
- Small group bible studies
Template for a letter to your MP - Want to write to your MP regarding tax justice in light of coronavirus, but not sure where to begin?
