Welcome to the Fellowship of Reconciliation

Front cover Peace Sunday 2015 Want to do more for peace but don’t have the time?

Celebrate PEACE SUNDAY on 20th September with our FREE RESOURCE

In the booklet you’ll find reflections on the Lectionary to use in sermons, prayers, activities for youth groups and campaign suggestions. You could even use the reflections as ready-made sermons, for those who’d like to do more in their church for peace but don’t have the time to look things up and write things down.  They can also be used as reflections in small groups.

It’s not just for clergy; this year there’s a section specially for Quaker meetings.

Enough spoilers – see for yourself.  For a paper copy, email outreach@for.org.uk
