‘3 Things’ shares 3 highlights of the week related to the work we do here at the EIRIS Foundation

1. Interested in opening up conversations about money, faith and a fairer world? The Ecumenical Council for Corporate Responsibility (ECCR) has launched a new resource as part of a national programme called Money Makes Change. It’s an accessible, interactive resource for small groups designed to help you inspire conversation, prayer and action around a range of issues. A preview of the resource and accompanying materials can be downloaded here https://www.eccr.org.uk/learning-materials/ and a full version requested for free from info@eccr.org.uk

2.
