Social Justice

Part of our mission is to engage with our community and wider society, to stand up for just treatment for all, in response to the call of Christ to love our neighbours.

Public Housing action

In line with our mission, All Saints advocates for increased availability of housing for poor and disadvantaged people and opposes the disposal of land currently owned by the community and reserved for public housing. Our advocacy is on social justice principles and is not aligned with any political party.

Our submission to the Standing Advisory Committee for the Walker Street Northcote Renewal project August 2017. The Standing Committee was established to consider an application by the State Government to change the status of the Walker Street Estate for planning purposes, to allow the land to be used for purposes other than public housing.

Housing and Social Justice forum

In March 2018, All Saints hosted a forum on the critical role of housing in the just treatment of the many thousands in our community who have no access to the private rental market and who are forced to live without affordable, secure housing, with all of the mental and physical health issues associated with this. The forum was held in the context of impending demolition of the public housing estate opposite the church, in Walker Street, Northcote. This estate has since been demolished and all tenants have been relocated to alternative housing while the site is redeveloped to provide for a smaller number of people to be housed in properties managed by community housing providers, and a much larger number of properties to be available for private sale.

Climate Change and Social Justice forum

Social Justice Church Climate Change Signs

Still the greatest moral challenge of our generation. In 2007 Kevin Rudd said that climate change was such an enormous challenge for governments across the world that in this country it should already be ‘beyond politics’.

More than ten years later, our national and global response remains woefully inadequate, and we are being called to action by those who will have to live with the consequences and will feel the full force of the impacts.

Failing to curb the human contribution to climate change is an injustice because those who have done least to bring it about will be hurt most:

The Rev’d Alex Sangster of Fairfield Uniting Church moderated the audience discussion with an outstanding panel, including:

This event was a discussion with outstanding panel of people, as they shared their views on this challenge and offer some insights into what can and should be done. There was also opportunity to connect with other concerned people and local organisations.

The event may be viewed online at Facebook @StPhilipsCollingwood.
