CHURCH AND PEACE Day Conference, Quaker Meeting House, Bull Street, Birmingham B4 6AF, Saturday 29 October 10am – 4.30pm.
The church as an agent of peace in an increasingly insecure world. Keynote speaker: Simon Barrow, director of Ekklesia: www.ekklesia.co.uk.
Church and Peace is a European ecumenical peace church network made up of communities, training centres, peace organisations and peace service agencies. It participates in the ecumenical dialogue of the conciliar process for Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation and is a catalyst for common initiatives and projects.
This Church and Peace Britain and Ireland day of reflection and discussion will look at what makes us secure, and what makes us insecure, and how the churches can play a prophetic role in building true security in the region today.
Workshop sessions and an afternoon panel discussion will give opportunities to reimagine the face of Church and Peace in Britain and Ireland, to see what the network’s unique contribution can be in the future and how we can strengthen the work already being done.
The event is free of charge. A soup and sandwich lunch can be booked at a cost of £6.00.
