In the Autumn of 2017 we will be putting on another NVDA training day, probably the 7th October, and possibly in Birmingham. Watch this space for more information.
Our last training day was in October 2016. This is the flier for that day:
Non-Violent Direct Action
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 are organising a training day for those interested in exploring these themes in London on October 15th 2016.
If you are interested in taking part then please contact us by email on:
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.
