Join the Christian Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament for its 2020 Conference. As the world continues to come to terms with the Covid-19 crisis, it has illustrated with needs prioritise public spending on socially productive projects including health care rather than nuclear weapons, which do nothing to keep us safe.
The international community has been able to come together in a way rarely seen as the search for a vaccine. This should offer leaders a blueprint of what is possible when there is political will. Our prayer is that this attitude can be taken forward into talks about nuclear disarmament.
2020 should have seen the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference at the United Nations in New York. This key meeting, which takes place every five years, reviews progress towards nuclear disarmament under the auspices of the NPT. The Conference was subsequently postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and will now take place in January 2021.
In spite of the difficulties of this year, we have a sure hope in Jesus, which motivates us to continue to work and pray for a nuclear weapons-free world. The Conference will hear from Christians who continue to work and pray for peace around the world. Full details of speakers will be announced shortly.
The Christian CND AGM will take place immediately after the Conference where members will be able to vote for the Executive Committee for the next year.
The Conference will be a fantastic opportunity to gather with other Christians who share our vision of a world free of nuclear weapons. We hope you will be able to join us on the day.
