Who is my neighbour? Bible study course on Faith and Housing

London Citizens is an alliance of churches, schools, and other faith and community groups, working together for justice and the common good. In the lead up to the election for Mayor of London in May 2016, London Citizens is working with communities to tackle London’s housing crisis. This course has been put together by members of London Citizens in the borough of Lambeth, exploring the issue of housing and asking what faith has to contribute to the issue. We are grateful to the MB Reckitt Trust for support in making this course.

This course is for churches who wish to look at what the Bible has to say on housing during Lent. The course has five sessions.
