Natalie Williams

Natalie grew up in a working class family in the deprived but beautiful seaside town of Hastings, which the Daily Mail once called “Hell-on-Sea” but is actually quite lovely. She encountered the wonderful mercy of God at 15 and has wrestled with Him ever since.

Natalie used to be a journalist and now works for the Christian charity Jubilee+, which was started by Newfrontiers, heading up communications and policy. She has co-authored two books on British poverty and the Church with Martin Charlesworth (‘A Church for the Poor’, The Myth of The Undeserving Poor) and has a third one coming out in 2020. Natalie also heads up social action at King’s Church in Hastings.

Natalie loves the mercy of Jesus and is passionate about churches being a force for good in their communities, tackling poverty and injustice and building churches where people from the poorest backgrounds are welcomed and included.

Take a listen...

 The Bible shows us that God has always seemed to have a bias towards the orphan, the widow, the person who's been forced to flee their home, and for the oppressed. The Bible is pretty clear that if you are a follower of Jesus, then you should care about the needs of those who are afflicted, or distressed, or oppressed in any way.
