Event date(s): 20 March 2020

The bright coastal sky over Northern Ireland | NI CRC

Launched in November 2019, Considering Grace: Presbyterians and the Troubles tells the stories of 120 Presbyterians and their experience of the conflict.

Canon David Porter, Chief of Staff to the Archbishop of Canterbury will unpack the impact of the book for wider society. David is formerly director of ECONI, which sought to equip Christians to address division and conflict and challenged churches to think biblically about peacebuilding.

Considering Grace also raises a number of challenges for ministry and witness in PCI itself, and Very Rev Dr Stafford Carson, Principal of Union Theological College will unpack the impact of the book in this context.


Roundtable Discussions

There will be opportunity to engage with the issues raised by David and Stafford through roundtable conversations. A panel including both speakers along with author Dr Gladys Ganiel, and Dr Nicola Brady (General Secretary, Irish Council of Churches) will facilitate further feedback and discussion.

A resource to help congregations unpack the impact of Considering Grace in their local setting will also be launched during the event.

The event is free to attend.
