Letting in the Light:
Positive steps for peace in a turbulent world
20-22 April 2018
Hinsley Hall, Leeds
Keynote session: Kim Leadbeater, sister of Jo Cox MP

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. In 2017, 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
