Week of Prayer for World Peace

The Week of Prayer for World Peace was started as a Christian initiative in 1974. It soon became an interfaith activity, and now welcomes everyone, of all faith traditions or none. It takes place between the second and third Sunday in October, this year from 11-18 October.
Each year a booklet is published with prayers for each day on a different theme of peace. The prayers are short and from different faiths. Themes for the day this year are peace education; non-violence; the United Nations; remembering the end of World War 2; the coronavirus pandemic; environment and security; Leadership for Reconciliation and Peacemakers.
There is an interfaith gathering to launch the week which will be on zoom on Sunday 11 October at 3.30pm.

Please take a look at the website https://weekofprayerforworldpeace.co.uk/
You can order copies of the leaflet there.

Keeping Children Safe within Faith Settings During Covid-19

Strengthening Faith Institutions (SFI) recognises that during the Covid-19 pandemic the safeguarding of children, staff, and volunteers within faith institutions remains a priority for everyone.
In light of the current situation as a result of the Coronavirus, SFI is working with faith institutions and out-of-school settings to reduce the risk of contracting and spreading of the virus to children, young people, staff, volunteers and their families. The conference will bring together faith institutions, voluntary, community and faith leaders, volunteers, tutors and parents to explore many areas including: some of the current Covid-19 challenges; safeguarding children and young people; developing effective organisations, and identifying what is helping and what is hindering their work; lessons learnt on individual journeys of improvement; what more is needed to be done to keeping children safe.
