...we all seem to know when something isn’t fair. Every day there are headlines that scream ‘injustice’. We live in a world of inequality, corruption, violence and greed.

What does the Bible have to say about justice both now and in the future? Should it be high on our agenda as individuals and as a church both in a local and global sense? If so what can we do?

Crying Out Loud will explore the issue of justice in depth with gifted speakers (left) who are grappling and engaging with these questions on a daily basis. As well as exploring the biblical view, we will look together at practical responses locally, nationally and internationally. So let’s stand against injustice and play our part in changing the world around us.





Why and how should we engage with injustice in a hurting world?
