A global reimagining of Christian peacebuilding in Northern Ireland

Our current political and community context continues to be defined by impasse and apathy. Consequently, if the Church is to contribute to a new social contract built on authentic reconciliation, we need a new vision in post-conflict community relations built on the primacy of relationship.

Thrive Ireland's conference will explore this theme by reinvigorating vision and practice through cross cultural learning from Rwanda and Zimbabwe.

Christophe Mbonyingabo
Rwanda

The conference themes will include:

  • Advocacy and nation building; a Zimbabwean perspective
  • Forgiveness; a Rwandan perspectice
  • The Church and nation building
  • Global learning and the primacy of relationship
