What is the role of Christians in a housing crisis?

We all know stories about the housing crisis.  Friends who can’t afford a home or struggle to pay rent.  Families forced to stay in motels or sleep in their car.  Children getting sick because their home is too cold and damp.  This election, Bishop Justin calls you to join a period of prayer, reflection and action.  As church members – homeowners, renters, landlords, communities and voters – we will consider the part we can play.  On 27 August, as part of a national week of action on housing, join with other churches to hold services of lament for New Zealanders living without stable or adequate housing.  Commit to your own personal and collective response – and get started.  Join in:  sign up for resources and videos by emailing
