Finding it difficult to talk about peace in church? We’re supporting you to hold a service for peace, by doing most of the work for you. We’ve compiled a resource including sermon notes, prayers and hymns, activities for children’s groups and inspiring stories of hope from international peacemakers.
Get the 2018 free resource here. Come back soon for details of where Peace Sunday services will be held around the country.
Church House Westminster is a conference centre whose profits go to the Church of England. In 2017, yet again, they hosted an event sponsored by arms dealers including Lockheed Martin. Thousands of people think they shouldn’t. Join us outside the main entrance to Church House on Tuesday 19 June between 8am-10am to hold a peaceful vigil at the start of the 2018 Land Warfare Conference.
If you can’t make it in person, please phone Church House (details here) or tweet them @churchhouseconf to ask them why they host arms-funded events. Be polite – the people answering the phone are not the ones making decisions, and they are all God’s children even if we oppose the stance of the institution. Find out more about our Church House work and take action
