This year, the National Justice & Peace Network Conference has been organised by the local Hallam J&P Commission. The conference takes place over the weekend of 19th – 21st July at The Hayes Conference Centre, Swanick and is open to everyone.
The theme of the weekend is ‘Breaking Open the Word: A call to faith in action’. Keynote speaker, Megan McKenna is a theologian, storyteller and spiritual writer and will open up scripture and share stories and personal reflections. Through input from Megan along with a range of workshops and creative spaces, the conference will seek to explore ways of integrating action and faith through prayer, art and lifestyle as well as critique of current social, economic and political realities from the perspective of the poor.
Workshops will include guidance for incorporating peaceful and reflective Ignatian style prayer into everyday life, an opportunity to sample a traditional Eritrean Coffee Ceremony and the most up to date information and practical ideas for supporting CAFOD’s Hungry for Change Campaign.
