Faith & Politics

This Senior Phase TIOF resource will explore what Scripture and Church Teaching tells us about our responsibility to take positive action as a responsible citizen.

SCIAF is part of a global movement of Christians campaigning for a just and green world.  We have an opportunity and responsibility to amplify the voices of the poorest and most marginalised people around the world. Together, we must challenge the unfair systems that keep them in poverty; we must use our collective voice to influence key decision-makers like MPs and MSPs to take action for a fairer world.
