Come and join CHIPS, Rhythms and threads on Wednesday, 10 June for an evening together exploring how we can be agents of peace at a local, national and international level. We will be hearing from three inspiring speakers who are actively seeking peace in the world in different ways. There will be time for guided discussion and activities helping you to explore issues with others attending the event, and also an opportunity to put your points to the speakers, so come with questions and join us as we explore how we can engage in conflict and be peacemakers in the world.
Paul Rose is Director of CHIPS (Christian International Peace Service). Drawing on CHIPS’ peacemaking methodology and their experience in Brixton, Paul will explore how to identify and engage in conflict in our own neighbourhoods. (Read Paul’s most recent threads article on living out peace in your neighbourhood.)
Andy Walton works for the Centre for Theology & Community, and will be talking about his time in Palestine and Israel as a human rights observer.
Lisa Whitten is currently working on her Masters in Comparative Ethnic Conflict at Queen’s University, Belfast, having worked previously for an MP. She will be talking to us about how we can can practically and personally engage with current international conflict by looking at the Democratic Republic of Congo and the refugee crisis in the Mediterranean.
We would love it if you stayed after the event for drinks and to continue conversations.
