Living God's Love Values - Generosity, Joy, Imagination and Courage

Community and Justice work

Part of our strategy ‘Living God’s Love’ is ‘Transforming Communities’ – there are various ministries and projects seeking to make known God’s love and His Kingdom values among people in our communities.

In the gospels we read of Jesus’ exhortation to ‘Love  the Lord our God and to love our neighbours as ourselves’ – a question for us to consider, “Who is my neighbour?”

 

In our diocese, we have many rural parishes and below are some new opportunities for development in this setting, offered by Germinate:

 

 

Luton Christians and other community leaders will be joined by Shane Claiborne and Red Letter Christians UK on Tuesday 18th June 2019.  It is hoped that the opportunity of having Shane here will help to shape and amplify the voices and callings of local activists for Jesus and justice.   The day is aimed at younger people, but all are welcome – it is hoped that Red Letter Christians UK can become a Spirit-led force for connecting and empowering voices for Jesus in the UK.  On 18th June there will be three parts; attend any one or all of these, they are:

  1. A morning seminar 9.30 am – 12 noon – at St Luke’s Church, Leagrave, to encourage and connect Christian leaders passionate about Jesus and justice.  Shane and local activists will share their stories and insights.  Morning Seminar – Leagrave
  2. A public act of witness and peace-vigil held in Luton Town Centre 2 – 3pm, showing commitment to developing cultures of peace, especially addressing deprivation and serious youth violence.  Town Centre Peace Vigil 
  3. An evening meeting, 7.30 – 9.30pm,at St Mary’s Church Luton – for a new generation of change-makers, Shane Claiborne will keynote this evening.  Evening at St Mary’s
