Christian CND events
Saturday 15 May @ 0915 – Christian CND and Pax Christi invite you to join us for silent reflection and prayer for peace and justice in Israel and Palestine.
The current situation in Israel and Palestine is deeply distressing. As Christians we believe that violence, suffering and conflict have no place on God’s earth and that we are called to work and pray for peace in all circumstances. On Saturday 15 May, Nakba Day, people around the world will gather for Circles of Silence to reflect on the events of the past few weeks and to pray for peace and justice in Israel and Palestine. Christian CND and Pax Christi invite you to gather with us on Zoom from 0915 for 30 minutes for periods of silent reflection and the chance to pray together.
10-27 May: Christian CND is joining other groups in the Network of Christian Peace Organisations to present Key Issues Facing Christians Today – a series of webinars exploring racism, climate change and militarism. There will be a chance to hear from campaigners and leading thinkers as well as plenty of opportunity to share ideas and experiences. See more information on the NCPO website.
During May we are joining in with the Thy Kingdom Come prayer initiative and will hosting prayer meetings during that time:
At the end of the Thy Kingdom Come period we will be hosting a 24 hour prayer room. With larger gatherings at the start and end, someone will be online for the whole 24 hour period to pray, reflect or just have a friendly chat. We’ll start at 9am on Saturday 22 May and finish at 9am on Sunday 23 May.
