Hope into Action Conference 2016 photos

Experts on homelessness and the causes of homelessness, church leaders including Dr Rowan Williams (former Archbishop of Canterbury), former homeless people and Christians who are concerned with the recent increases in levels of homeless, came together for the second Hope into Action Homeless Conference.

The event included an energising speech by Dr Rowan Williams on how churches can engage with the homeless. He also presented eleven awards to Hope into Action tenants who have successfully refrained from drugs, alcohol, remained in work, not re offended or re-established links with family over the last twelve months.

Commenting on the Hope into Action conference Dr Williams explained “What I really admire about Hope into Action is that it has a holistic depth to it. Not just to be well and do well but to become the human being God has made us to be. The other thing I admire about Hope into Action is that it allows people in our churches to recognise they can actually do something. Quite often when I talk about issues, people say yes, but what can I do? It’s too difficult and too complicated. I guess I can pray. But I think it is wonderful when Christian individuals and communities are released into the sense that in all sorts of accessible and immediate ways they can take action that changes things.”
