Both organisations said tax- dodging is an injustice and robs countries of the taxes they are owed.
This is money that could be spent on essential services such as health, education and welfare.
Niall Cooper, Church Action on Poverty, said: "At a time when spending cuts are having a devastating impact on the UK's poorest people and communities, tax-dodging is morally unacceptable.
"It amounts to robbing the poor.
"If the Government just collected the £35 billion of tax they know is going uncollected, they could invest properly in tackling UK poverty."
The bus will be in the square from 9.30am and will remain there for two hours.
