If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that our personal and collective response in times of crisis and conflict are crucial. As Covid-19, racial injustice, and the climate crisis continue to deeply impact our society, we are inviting you to join us on a journey of hope: not the kind of hope that simply wishes for change optimistically, but the kind of hope that faces reality, stands in solidarity, and takes radically compassionate action.
We are a community of committed peacemakers: people of faith who believe that everyday peacemaking, from a place of our deepest values, can reconcile some of the most sacred relationships between ourselves, the Earth, our faith, and with others.
This community will be an anchor point as we explore together how to creatively and courageously respond to the fractures of conflict and polarization, cultivating a more relational and resilient society.
If you believe a new, more peaceful way of being is not only possible but paramount and want to be inspired by experienced faith leaders and innovative practices, this programme is for you.
The Journey of Hope is a 6 month leadership programme for people of faith to transform their communities, taking place across six weekends, mostly online, from February – July 2021, taking applications now. In partnership with some of the leading Christian based peace & reconciliation centres in the UK & Ireland, including Coventry Cathedral, we will equip participants to creatively and courageously respond to issues of crisis and conflict in their communities, cultivating a more relational and resilient society. There is a cost to attend, but there are bursaries available.
