Saintfield Road Presbyterian Church, Belfast BT8 6GQ (TBC) Saturday 6 March | 9:30am-1pm | Coffee & lunch
We are really excited to let you know about our supporter conference for 2021. We will be keeping a close eye on government guidelines for health and safety and are putting in place plans to meet in-person if possible and online if not.
This year’s Supporter Conference will inspire, encourage and equip you for Christian Aid’s year of climate justice.
Christian Aid’s theme in 2021 is Climate Justice, and we are calling the church to pray, act and give.
The world’s poorest people have long been living with the impacts of climate breakdown; families are torn apart by disaster, crops are ruined by drought and people’s homes and livelihoods are lost to rising seas. Global heating threatens the last 50 years of development work.
The climate crisis has thankfully become a headline issue, but perhaps you’re wondering how you can respond, putting your faith into action to love your global neighbour?
The Supporter Conference is a great way to explore how you can do something about climate change. Confirmation of our keynote speaker coming soon!
Last March at our supporter conference, we had hand sanitizer available upon arrival and upon entering and exiting different rooms. We had no idea that almost a year later we’d still be doing the same thing - that we’d also be wearing masks and we’d be unable to have close friends in our homes. What is clear, however, is that meeting together (whether in person or on-line) is vital for our wellbeing and sense of encouragement.
We’re excited about our conference on the 6th March: we want to get together with our committed volunteers to encourage one another, to be equipped together and to be re-inspired by all the hope there is even in the midst of challenges. We’d love for you to join us!
- Ruth Cooke, Head of Fundraising & Supporter Engagement.
You’ll be introduced to the Christian Aid Week stories and seminars on pray, act and give will inform you and give you ideas to take back to your church. Over coffee and lunch, (if restrictions in place at the time allow) you’ll also have the chance to meet with Christian Aid staff and other volunteers, sharing ideas and encouraging one another, as well as browsing resources and Traidcraft goodies.
