Afternoon workshops.

These are planned around the four themes of the day. Each session will run twice. Please make your choice and enter it above.


Letting loose hope :

  • Mary Grey will talk on 'The Outrageous Pursuit of Hope', followed by discussion.
  • Sarah de Nordwall is a bard with a bard school with a mission to entertain and energise through insight, humour and delight.  The 'Healing of the Cosmos' is not an impossible dream. Christ has obtained it, and in His work we participate. Come and experience how the poems and stories of a contemporary bard can evoke that glorious freedom of the Children of God for which Creation Waits. (Access via steep staircase.)

Empowering agents of change :

  • Ann Pettifor will brief us on Operation Noah's strategy to cut the carbon. She will engage with participants in discussing how the Operation Noah climate change campaign can be an agent of change locally, nationally and globally.

  • Three short presentations will be given, followed by discussion, on how we can be empowered to be agents of change from three different perspectives: Dave Bookless of ' A Rocha' for the natural world; Jo Rathbone of ' EcoCongregation ' for the local church; and Nicholas Grey celebrates 20 years of ' Wells for India' - work and prayer with Gandhian Partners. (Access via steep staircase.)

Pioneering practical discipleship and Equipping prophetic witness : A selection of mini-workshops are offered, so-called because the groups will be small. If you select the 'mini-workshops' option you will be able to choose on the day which one you would like to attend. Each session will last one hour.

The sessions include:

Practical ideas on taking action:

  • EcoTeams sample session.
  • How to set up a local CEL group: CEL's local groups co-ordinator John Vivian.
  • Working together: faith and secular: Roy Tindle of the London 21 Sustainability Network and London Churches Environmental Group.

Equipping our prophetic witness :

  • Explore how we read the Bible and our own prayer lives: Chris Walton.
  • Discuss earthing worship.
  • Breaking the silence: forum for writers, speakers and preachers, and those who'd like to give it a try: Paul Bodenham.
