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.

Disarm Church House
Church House Westminster is a conference centre whose profits go to the Church of England. This year, yet again, they hosted an event sponsored by arms dealers including Lockheed Martin. Thousands of people think they shouldn’t. Call or tweet them @churchhouseconf to ask them why they host arms-funded events. Find out more and take action
