Inspired by Anglicare’s gospel-focused vision to care in Jesus’ name, Share the Benefit provides church congregations and small groups with the opportunity to share what the Bible has to say about reaching out to our neighbours in need.
In addition, by living for one week on a Newstart benefit allowance for food and drink, participants can share in a small but powerful way the restrictions experienced by many people living in poverty.
Share the Benefit is designed to be done by small groups over a three-week period. Each week consists of Bible study, prayer and discussion within your group combined with preparation, reflection and activity in your own time.
The emphasis throughout is on how Christian faith inspires us to live a life of care and generosity in response to God’s great love for us.
