London 15th October 2016

Followers of Jesus Christ are taught to imitate Christ and so are often given training and encouragement to feed the hungry, heal the sick and forgive our enemies.

Seldom are we trained or encouraged to follow Jesus Christ in the activities that won the attention of the authorities, got him arrested and then crucified.  His early followers shared in this aspect of his life but we generally do not.

Some of us who are aware of the contemporary signs of the times, aware of the behaviours of the principalities and powers in the world and aware of our own complicity in these processes wonder what role Non-Violent Direct Action (NVDA) should have in our following of Jesus Christ.

Members of the NVDA group Christian Climate Action have organised a training day for those interested in exploring these themes on 15th October 2016.

If you would like to take part then please register here.

No prior experience is expected.  Interest and participation in this training day commits you to no action but it is hoped that it will be of use to you as you consider the issues around NVDA and how it relates to your own Christian discipleship.

Although Christian Climate Action focus on issues around Climate Change it is hoped this training day will be of use to Christians with diverse interests in Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation.

Venue: St David Room on the lower floor of St Georges Cathedral, Cathedral House, Westminster Bridge Rd, Camberwell, London SE1 7HY

Saturday, 15th October, 10am Coffee, 10-30am start, 6pm finish.

Please bring your own lunch, coffee and tea will be provided.
