The purpose of the Commission is to:

  • Promote awareness, discussion  and action throughout the Leeds diocese about the ‘Just’ Gospel response to the key issues of today
  • Advise the bishop of Leeds in respect of key Social Justice issues
  • Celebrate the work  that so many people in the diocese are already doing to bring about God’s Reign of Justice and Peace

LEEDS PALESTINIAN FILM FESTIVAL

08 NOVEMBER – 11 DECEMBER still photos from films on a filmstrip

Finding out about life in Palestine is almost impossible from the mainstream media.  This festival, taking place at various venues across the city, is a great way to find out more about aspects of life for Palestinians today. Although the situation for many Palestinians is heartbreaking you will also find many uplifting stories among the films on offer.  

Look at the special website for the festival in order to see the full programme of films. Last year many of the presentations sold out – so be sure to book a ticket for anything that you think you might attend.

FAMILY POVERTY: A DIOCESE ACTS

Project Logo

Living on a low income is difficult – even more so for families. What are the problems experienced by families on low income?  What can we (as Church) do about it – given the importance that we attach to family values?

These are the key questions explored in a set of 5 two hour parish-based workshops that we are currently piloting.

Could you host a set of meetings in your parish or Churches Together group?

Email the office for more information.
