The Churches Together in King’s Lynn is organizing a Peace and Justice Forum in January to discuss issues of social justice. The event, which is free and open to anyone interested in social justice from a Christian perspective, will take place on Saturday January 13. The presenter for the forum is Rev Steve Tinning, the Baptist Union’s Public Issues Enabler, who is known for his practical theology and community-organizing theory, which form the basis of his ministry of justice and compassion. The day will include seminars on various issues as well as opportunities for conversation. The topics to be covered include poverty and the cost-of-living crisis, climate change and the church, peace in Ukraine & Russia and Israel & Gaza, and asylum, refugees, and the hostile environment. The event will also feature an interview with James Wild, MP for North West Norfolk, or Andrew Frere Smith, development worker for “Together Norfolk.”
The event, which will provide a light lunch and tea and coffee, is free, but booking is essential. The purpose of the forum is to explore important issues of social justice ahead of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. The forum aims to provide an opportunity for delegates to reflect on challenging questions and consider how they can take action together. The event offers church leaders of all denominations the chance to address issues that they experience on a daily basis and discuss how they can collectively affect change.
The Peace and Justice Forum will be hosted at Cornerstone Baptist Church, Wisbech Road, PE30 5JS from 10am to 3pm. The event is an important opportunity for those interested in social justice from a Christian perspective to come together to explore and discuss key issues. Those interested in attending can book their spot online. The forum promises to be an informative and thought-provoking event, and it is a crucial opportunity for individuals to come together to engage in meaningful conversations about social justice.
