As a bit of a taster though, here’s what you can expect:

Elfrida Calvocoressi, chair of Christian International Peace Service (CHIPS). A former nurse and midwife, Elfrida has been involved in practical, grassroots peacemaking for many years, with a focus on biblical principles of Christian peacemaking.

Alan Storkey is an economist, sociologist and artist. He is known for his writing and lectures and for his work on transport and the Arms Trade. His session is about A Strategy for the War against War.

Liz Firth works for the Church Urban Fund in partnership with the Diocese of Leeds, and was previously Inter-Faith worker at Bradford Cathedral. She links with newly arrived women and seldom-heard groups, and also hosts a community radio programme. She will talk about her project, Faith and Peace, which is working on at Bradford Peace Museum.

Cities of Sanctuary is a project which welcomes people who come to the UK seeking sanctuary, many of whom are escaping violence.

…plus workshops on grassroots peacemaking & creative activism, worship and plenty of social time. All sessions optional. It will also include FoR’s AGM; members actively encouraged to participate!
