Confronting Extinction: Militarism and the Climate Crisis @ Mill Hill Chapel
Jan 25 @ 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm


Event Flyer
Militarism and the Climate Crisis are inseparable. The US military is the largest institutional consumer of oil in the world, outputting higher carbon emissions than most countries. Armed forces emissions have traditionally been excluded from national reduction targets and have continued to rise, while our dependence on fossil fuels continues to drive conflict and war.
The interdependence of nuclear weapons and civilian nuclear power in terms of skills and public resources means that the UK government continues to champion expensive new nuclear at the expense of genuinely clean wind, wave and sun power.

Prophetic Imagination – Catholic People’s Week Winter Weekend @ Hinsley Hall
Feb 15 @ 12:00 pm – Feb 16 @ 3:00 pm

Catholic People’s Weeks is a not-for-profit volunteer-led organisation that runs holidays that ‘make a difference’ – known as Catholic People’s Weeks. The organisation’s mission, and therefore the mission of each holiday, is to revitalise the heart, mind and spirit of Catholic people today.In the Winter they hold a weekend event and this one is at our Diocesan Pastoral centre Hinsley Hall.

 

On Saturday 15th their keynote speaker will be David McLoughlin, Emeritus Fellow of Christian Theology at Newman University, Birmingham. In his research he explores the relationship between theology and everyday life. On the challenge of prophetic imagination in 2020, David says “in every age we need men and women who open up for us the prophetic imagination of a Moses at the burning bush, or Hosea and Amos in a time of national crisis and of Jesus in his time”. David has also worked extensively with CAFOD over the years.
