Peace Sunday: 18th September 2016
Have you been trying to get your church to do more about peace, but it’s an uphill struggle?
Perhaps you’d love to do a peace service but don’t know where to start?
We’ve got a resource to help you. We’ve filled it with sermon ideas, activities for children & young people, news about international peacework and ways to get involved in peace & justice.
The sermon notes are also ideal for using in a group Bible study, prayer meeting or for reflection.
Just fill in a few details below to get a PDF of the resource.
Paper copies can also be ordered from the office, on 01865 250781
