Poverty, peace and power: Putting Christian faith into action

In 2014, Christian Aid is running a pilot project with a small group of church schools.

This project aims to inspire and inform RE students about faith perspectives on critical global issues, with in-depth exploration of how Christians might understand poverty, peace and power.

Some of the lessons include recommendations for film content, and these films have been made available here to view or download for your convenience.
