Churches For Tax Justice

The Methodist Tax Justice Network, Central England Quaker Peace Committee, Jubilee Debt Campaign, Catholic National Justice & Peace Network and Ecumenical Council for Corporate Responsibility Present:

Churches for Tax Justice

An Ecumenical Meeting

The evasion and avoidance of tax by trans-national corporations and the super wealthy is one of the most important economic justice issues of our time. Developed and developing countries alike are losing out on much needed tax revenues, which are needed to pay for crucial public services and infrastructure. The international tax system is not fit for purpose, and is one of the key factors in the widening inequality gap between the world's wealthiest and poorest individuals. But what can the church in the UK, in all its forms, do to help fight for tax justice?

This one day event aims to help campaigners from all denominations explore how they can raise awareness and campaign for tax justice - as individuals, congregations, Churches and Christians. The keynote speaker is Alex Cobham, Chief Executive of the Tax Justice Network. This will be followed by opportunities to join either a wide-ranging discussion on the future of the Tax Justice movement within UK churches, what form this might take and how an ecumenical body might interact with other networks and platforms, or a worship planning session with Revd Smitha Prasadam, to devise a short closing act of worship for the day and create new worship resources for future use. Lunch will be provided between 12:45-1:30pm, and is included in the ticket price of £10 per head, payable on the day. Please register your interest by RSVPing here, or by emailing mtjncoordinator@gmail.com
