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 the need to prioritise public spending on socially productive projects including health care rather than nuclear weapons, which do nothing to keep us safe.
The time table for day is:
1030 – Zoom meeting opens for registration
1230-1300 Break for lunch
1300-1345 Speaker – Martin Newall of Christian Climate Action
1430-1435 Closing comments and Prayer
There are three workshops to chose from, each one will be repeated twice to ensure people can participate as much as possible. You can either attend the same workshop twice or two different ones. Workshops will cover: Bringing nuclear weapons into the Christian mainstream; Nuclear weapons and climate change; Christian CND plans for 2021 including event at Methodist Central Hall.
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.
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.
This event is free, but it helps with planning if you can book on Eventbrite.
