Organised by: Network of Christian Peace Organisations

Who are we called to be to transform the world ?

In the face of structural and cultural violence, militarism, division, and the climate emergency, how can we become the prophets and reconcilers the world needs to inspire radical transformation in our communities, in our world, and in ourselves? The Network of Christian Peace Organisations invites you to join us for a day of spiritual reflection and renewal on the theme of Christian peacemaking. With speakers from a broad range of backgrounds and faith traditions, we will explore nonviolence, bridge-building, grassroots activism, and ways we are called to be spiritual peacemakers - a force for change in the world today.
