NJPN Conference 2008

Celebrating Thirty Years of Working for Peace and Social Justice

Over 350 people gathered at Swanwick, Derbyshire to take part in the 30th Conference organised by The National Justice and Peace Network, bringing together justice and peace activists from all areas of England and Wales. This was indeed a celebration of commitment and enthusiasm, together with the firm conviction that as a profession of our faith we are called both individually and collectively to work for peace and social justice.

The theme for the weekend, ‘Hear My People Cry’ explored the implications of “doing justice” in the places where we live and work. Archdiocese of Liverpool Justice and Peace Commission members prepared and facilitated the programme; ‘The Tongues of Fire’ Music Ministry team enabled us to integrate the themes and discussions into our worship in a vibrant way.
