The Joint Public Issues Team (JPIT) is made up of the Baptist Union, the Church of Scotland, the Methodist Church and the United Reformed Church, working together for peace and justice.
Christians are called to act justly and to work for God’s kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. What does this mean today, and how can we make a difference?
As the Joint Public Issues Team, we work to:
- equip Christians to act and pray on issues of injustice,
- resource churches to reflect and campaign effectively,
- help our Churches to speak out with a distinctively Christian voice on injustice.
With an overwhelming amount of injustice faced in Great Britain and throughout the world, we aim to respond as best we can, but we focus our efforts around Six Hopes for Society. In 2020-2021, we have adopted five priorities for our work.
Why we do what we do is important to us. As four Christian denominations working together, we have a wealth of tradition and thinking to draw upon, and we reflect on these in many of our blogs.
How we are governed
The Joint Public Issues Team is governed by a Strategy and Policy Group made up of senior staff members from each of our four denominations. This group meets regularly to oversee the work of the team and to structure our priorities and future work.
