Church and Peace in Britain and Ireland, Birmingham 29th October

peaceA day of reflection on the theme ‘The church as an agent for peace in an increasingly insecure world’ will take place in the Quaker Meeting House, 40 Bull Street, Birmingham B4 6AF, on 29th October 2016.

The keynote speaker, Simon Barrow, Director of Ekklesia, will look at what makes us secure and what makes us insecure, and how our faith fits into this. We will look at how the churches can play a prophetic role in building true security 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, which is free of charge, will run from 10.30 to 16.00.  A soup and sandwich lunch can be booked at a cost of £6.00.

For registration and further information, contact Barbara Forbes at To register, please send your name, contact details and the name of your church/meeting/organisation, as applicable. Individual participants are also welcome.

Thanks for letting us know if you’d like to book the lunch, and if you’re a vegetarian or have a special diet. Please register by 20th October.
