Rhythm and Rules: Developing a Personal Rule of Life @ Contemporary Christianity | Belfast | United Kingdom

Maintaining your spiritual life isn’t easy; it is seldom a subject of personal conversation except with really trusted friends or soul-mates!

We often hear talks and sermons on personal devotions, yet for many people with real faith these can easily get squeezed out in our busyness - even in our busyness in Christian work! The workshops will be jointly led by Bishop Harold Miller (Bishop of Down and Dromore) and David Dunlop (Pastor of Windsor Baptist Church) THURSDAY 11th February, 7:30 - 9:30pm THURSDAY 25th February, 7:30 - 9:30pm THURSDAY 10th March, 7:30 - 9:30pm Venue: Contemporary Christianity Offices, 21 Ormeau Avenue, Belfast BT2 8HD (click for map) Each session will have input from both Harold and David and will include space for  participants to spend time developing their Personal Rule of Life. By the end of the three evenings each participant will have developed a Personal Rule of Life.
Places are limited, so please register: Places are limited so reserve your place TODAY.
Note: There is no charge for these workshops. Gifts or donations can be made to Contemporary Christianity.

Passion Walk 2016 @ Grosvenor House
Mar 25 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Passion Walk 2016 @ Grosvenor House | Belfast | United Kingdom
The Passion Walk is an individual reflective journey through the streets of central Belfast, where the city itself becomes the backdrop for the story of Christ’s Passion. Walking with an audio guide and pausing at certain key locations, you will be invited to enter into the events of Jesus’ final hours. The first Easter took place in a busy, complex city where most people were preoccupied with their own concerns. The Passion Walk is an invitation to experience the story in a new way, and perhaps to see the city in a new light. You are invited to begin your journey at Grosvenor House, 5 Glengall Street (behind the Opera House) any time between 10am and 1pm on Friday 25th or Saturday 26th of March. Make your urban pilgrimage at your own pace, alone or with friends, and complete the journey with refreshments and a space for further reflection at The Dock Café in Titanic Quarter. We ask all walkers to book in advance on our website www.passionwalk.org. There is a charge of £5 (£3 unwaged) to help cover costs.

A Soul for the Union?

Faith-based perspectives on the EU Referendum

An evening to help people of faith and others explore some of the issues to be considered in a deciding on how best to vote in the forth-coming referendum.

Keynote speaker - Ben Ryan (Theos Think Tank)

Ben first joined the Theos think tank as an intern in September 2013 and graduated to a researcher in early 2014. He read Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Cambridge and also has an MSc in European Studies from the LSE European Institute. He is the author of the Theos reports A Very Modern Ministry: Chaplaincy in the UK and A Soul for the Union.

Responders giving a N.I. perspective:

Colin Harvey (Professor of Human Rights Law, Queen's University Belfast) will respond with reference to Human Rights and Constitutional issues. Esmond Birnie (Chief Economist PWC in Scotland and N.I.) will respond with reference to Economic and Financial issues. There will be an opportunity for questions to Ben, Colin and Esmond. The Referendum is a democratic opportunity; the outcome will influence our relationships for years to come. Politics is inherently spiritual since God gives us the responsibility to govern within His sovereignty. This evening will explore issues of sovereignty and subsidiarity, business and bureaucracy, security, migrants and other national and local challenges we all face in making a decision on how to vote. It will encourage and help in making an informed response and not just one that thinks of self-interest!

Halfway House - Willowfield Parish Church @ Willowfield Parish Church | Belfast | Northern Ireland | United Kingdom
1916  A Hundred Years On is yet another creative response to the current decade of political centenaries that have shaped our country for better or for worse. It's a winter's night; snow has made driving across the Sperrins impossible. Louise and Bronagh, with similar but different backgrounds, end up in the back room of a pub. A conversation they never expected starts about their families and about 1916, the Somme and the Rising.
