Christian Aid is on the search for a group of creative young Christians that have a passion for social justice.

The relief and developmental agency has encouraged such people to apply for Christian Aid Collective's special event this summer called the Holy Hack.


Hannah Henderson from the group said: "Christian Aid Collective is a movement for change, challenging the systems that keep people poor.

"So we're calling 18-35 year old believers to come together for a day and put their skills and faith in action. They'll hear talks from inspiring activists. They'll work with others who share their passion for social justice."

While the event will have a relaxed atmosphere with worship and food, there are hopes that after some collaboration the attendees will come up with an innovative way to fight against global poverty.

"From civil rights to fair trade, the Church has a rich heritage of fighting for the rights of others and now it's a new generation's turn to pick up the torch," Henderson added.

The event will take place on 2nd June 2018 in central London. Applications can be submitted through Christian Aid Collective's website. The charity is looking for 72 people.
