The UK is in an unemployment crisis as the coronavirus pandemic takes its toll on the economy. At the Evangelical Alliance we want to face up to the current state of our country and seek the wisdom and will of God as we strive to bring hope and practical responses, glorifying Jesus as we do so.

The church has always responded with compassion and conviction to help those in greatest need. We believe there is an equal role for Christians to play in creating jobs that will help people out of poverty and provide economic stability.

As we share stories of Christians involved in job creation, it is our hope that business leaders and entrepreneurs are inspired to see this as a natural outworking of their own Christian faith. Equally, we will produce resources that we pray will provide the church and individuals with tools to tackle the problem practically.

Our ultimate prayer is that as God’s people strive to bring hope to many through employment, His character will be revealed and many more will come to know Jesus for themselves.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6
