Divided Past - Shared Future

Divided Past: Shared Future
Essays on Churches addressing the legacy of the Troubles

Centre for Contemporary Christianity in Ireland is committed to helping you and your church effectively serve Christ and our changing world.

The changing Ireland has already, and will continue, to demand much of the church. Centre for Contemporary Christianity works across the Christian traditions to address the challenges of a new era for the people of Ireland.

We are committed to:

Research providing informed, credible and practical comment and analysis on pertinent issues, rooted in biblical reflection and theological thought.

Equip – creating and facilitating learning opportunities - through courses, workshops and other events - and producing relevant, high-quality resources and materials.

Act – engaging with wider society, modelling good practice, building relationships, developing co-operation, supporting and encouraging others to join us and working in partnership when appropriate.

Share – developing our national and international relationships with churches and other Christian organisations for mutual learning in areas of common concern.

We can help you to think and act upon the issues of critical importance for the future by providing biblical resources and practical support.

We believe we can make a difference - helping the church to be good news for the people of Ireland. We want to see the Christian community nurture a deeply-rooted and radical biblical faith. Faith in God, who in Jesus Christ reconciles the world, restores human relationships and is concerned for all of life and creation.

We don't offer quick fixes or easy answers but we can offer you biblical resources and practical support as you seek to address the challenges of your context - serving your needs and helping to develop your ministry to the community in which you live and work.
