Dear Friends,

Ekklesia is a think tank committed to building a fairer world, whether through challenging the injustices created by austerity, calling for nonviolent solutions to conflict, or developing alternative approaches to welfare reform.

For example, this Easter we coordinated an open letter from leading Christians to Stephen Crabb (Secretary of State for the Department of Work and Pensions) calling on him to change the unjust benefit system. 

Next week we will be launching our challenging new book on housing, 'Foxes Have Holes: Christian reflections on housing need.' 

Whilst in June we will be publishing our paper on a future beyond the work capability assessment, drawn from the experiences of sick and disabled people.
