Each Wednesday of Lent we will be sharing a reflection from a JustMoney Champion or staff member exploring a passage of scripture. Week 2 – Let Us Take Only Our Fair Share JustMoney Champion Thomas reflecting on […]
Welcome to our blog space. Here you’ll find a number of blogs, both from external and internal authors.

What we do with money, how wealth is shared, and how money is used by investors, banks and companies, shapes the world we live in. £8.8 trillion of assets are managed by the UK investment sector1.

In this blog Dr Eve Poole OBE explores the lure of consumerism and how Christians can use their own consumer behaviour to redeem the marketplace. Using an ordinary bank statement, she explains how you can fine-tune your own consumer report card so that it serves God and not Mammon. What does it mean when you […]
