Christian Aid Week: The Barista Bishop

The Bishop of Oxford tried his hand as a barista to raise awareness of how small-scale coffee farmers in Nicaragua have been supported by Christian Aid to work their way out of poverty.

Bishop John Pritchard learned to make lattes and cappuccinos at AMT Coffee in Oxford ahead of Christian Aid Week, drawing attention to the way in which support from Christian Aid has helped to change the lives of thousands of people in Nicaragua by helping farmers to get a fair price for their coffee.

He wasn’t the only Bishop who worked as a barista for Christian Aid Week. Up and down the country Bishops have been working as baristas, along with the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland to help raise awareness of Christian Aid’s work.
