A&B Justice & Peace Assembly - 28 January 2017
The Annual Justice & Peace Assembly brings enthusiasts from across the diocese together for a day of inspiring talks, challenging debate and lively ‘marketplace’ activity.
Bishop Richard will be with us once again and the key theme of the event will be
‘Am I Good Neighbour?’ – Globalisation and the Fair Society.
Fr Augusto Zampini Davies, Theological Adviser to CAFOD, will reflect on Laudato Si’ (On Care for our Common Home), published by Pope Francis in June 2015. This is a love letter to all mankind and an urgent call to tackle the global human and ecological crisis. With an emphasis on integral human development and the interconnectedness of the ‘Cry of the earth’ and the ‘Cry of the poor’, Fr Augusto will share thoughts on how we are all both part of the problem and part of the solution.
Jenny Sinclair, Founder and Director of Together for the Common Good (T4CG), will talk about the radical approach needed to make our church outward-facing and acting in the interests of all in society. By working both ecumenically and across all traditions, Jenny will explore and celebrate different ways to foster the relationships necessary for a just and peaceful common life together.
There will be plenty of opportunities to network with others and learn more about initiatives throughout the diocese including our response to the Refugee Crisis. A Fairtrade stall selling goods from marginalised producers and farmers in the developing world will be available throughout the day and will have information on how to become a Fairtrade parish.

Time: 10.00 – 16.00
Location: DABCEC, 4 Southgate Drive, Crawley, West Sussex RH10 6RP
Refreshments are available throughout the day, but please bring a packed lunch
