Dignity: Taking a stand against gender violence

The challenge for the church and for mission

All of us have met someone who has been a victim of gender based violence. We just may not know it! One in 3 women worldwide has experienced violence. Domestic abuse, whatever the nature of it, is against God’s plan. David McAllister, Laura Gill, Gemma Brown and Tim Magowan will host a coffee shop conversation in the Upstairs Coffee Lounge in Holywood Baptist Church between 7.30 and 9.30. This will be an opportunity for folk unable to make it to the conference and for folks who want to continue a conversation started at the conference. Click here for details of the day conference

In Conversation With Philip Orr and Joe Austin @ Contemporary Christianity
Nov 8 @ 8:00 pm

The Poppy and the Lilly

Joe Austin is a veteran of the Republican movement and a member of the National Graves Association. Philip Orr, having been a schoolteacher, is a local historian, a writer and facilitator. This is an opportunity to hear about the work Philip and Joe have done around these two poignant symbols. The evening will have both historical and contemporary contexts. You are invited to join us for this evening to think through this topic which is highlighted in a striking line in Philip's play Halfway House, when Bronagh turns to Valerie and says, "You can parade your courage in public but we can't!"
