Peace Sunday 2019

Could your church join in ?

|

As we see increased division and violence in our own nation and wars and conflict continuing around the world, there is once again an urgent need for Christians and Churches to follow Jesus and be peacemakers. 

To mark the International Day of Peace on the 21st September, we’re encouraging churches to take time on Sunday 22nd September to focus on peace and peacemaking in their services and meetings.

Could your church join in ?  

We’ll provide you with a free resource to use which will include a sermon outline, prayers, readings and some background to our own peacemaking work.  We might even be able to send you one of our speaker team on the day. 

Please let us know if you church would like to focus on peace that day and we’ll send our resource to you as soon as it is ready.  Please email us on office@chipspeace.org or call on 020 7078 7439.  We’d love to hear from you.

‘In a world plagued by conflict and division, the Church has a crucial role to play as a community of peacemakers.  Jesus calls every one of us to love God, our neighbours, ourselves – and our enemies.  It’s a challenging command, with nobody left out.  We’re all given the message and task of reconciliation’

Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury
