Event description

Description

The seventh in a series of regional days with Green Christian and local communities to deepen ecological discipleship, mobilise for change, and build common cause for creation.

Including sessions on:

  • The Green Christian Way of Life, which provides a framework of 4 disciplines – Prayer, Living Gently on the Earth, Public Witness and Encouragement – by means of a dispersed Community of Companions. It has been described as the spiritual “heartbeat” of Green Christian. There will be an opportunity to discover new resources and share our experiences of using the disciplines as an aid to our ongoing spiritual journeys.
  • Joy in Enough, presenting a vision for a society dedicated to human flourishing and the common good rather than the constant pursuit of more. Recognising the value and limits of the natural world, we aim to harness the imagination of people in churches and beyond. We will use one of the modules in a learning guide we are preparing for church groups to explore these issues.
  • Q & A with Christian Climate Action

The day is open to all who are interested in discovering how we might better pray, live, witness and support each other in this time of crisis.

Please bring a contribution towards a bring-and-share lunch and your own mug if you can.

Cost free – but donations on the day welcome.

Booking is essential as space is limited. Please book before the end of Friday 27th September

Parking

At the venue itself, we can only guarantee disabled parking. However, there's a car park in the Merrywalks Shopping Centre - 5 minutes' walk from the venue. There's a small road off the bottom of Gloucester Street opposite the Painswick Inn and just below The Door (a youth project). A short way up there and there's a slip road to the right which leads up to the car park. Having parked there, go North along the pedestrian bridge across Merrywalks itself (the A46). This leads out onto the side of the road: walk uphill a short distance: the lane to the church and hall is first left.

A similar “Green Christian On the Road Together” regional day will be held on 14th Sept in Manchester.
