JPIT 2018 Conference
'Brave New World?'
What does it mean to be a Christian in the midst of our changing world? How do we live prophetically in a time of political turbulence, social upheaval and climate change?
‘Brave New World? Faithful living in a time of change’, is an opportunity to discuss challenges, fears and hopes for the future of our communities, nations and world with keynote speakers Stella Creasy MP and Peter Oborne, columnist at the Daily Mail.
The day will also include a plenary session entitled ‘Subversive Wisdom in a Brave New World’ from Sally Foster-Fulton, Head of Christian Aid Scotland, and a new poem from Lucy Berry which will be written throughout the day.
There will be a choice of ten workshops covering the following topics:
Poverty Truth Commissions: experts by experience
Faith, finance and the climate: how do we invest in a more sustainable future?
Universal Credit: tackling today’s poverty?
A Brave New World for the young?
Kingdom before Tribe
Creating a culture of welcome: church-led responses to migration and refugees
Worship and Justice (or ‘Never pray in a room without windows’)
A light lunch and refreshments throughout the day will be provided.
This is a FREE event. However, we estimate that the cost of lunch and refreshments for one person is £10. If you can contribute towards this, or even cover someone else’s cost too, there will be an opportunity to donate on the day.
