November 6th to 9th: Leadership for Social Change (Race, Caste, Religion and Social Class)
Jointly Sponsored by CARJ and VODI with support from Maryvale Institute.
Residential Training Workshop in Maryvale Institute, Birmingham.
Global society is currently being shaped by a variety of social movements which seek to bring about a more just, more equal and more cooperative society. Three organisations (CARJ, VODI and Maryvale), all registered charities in the UK, have decided to work together to offer a four-day, residential Workshop for those who intend to be involved in such social movements as activists, leaders or trainers.
This Workshop will develop the understanding and skills of participants to enable them to work more thoughtfully and effectively in social movements, especially those social movements defined or inspired by issues of ‘race, caste, religion or social class’.
The Workshop fee for the four-day residential is £300. This will cover the Workshop and full board and accommodation.
Applications should be in by 4th November.

Saturday 15th November: Film ‘The Stones Cry Out’ at 2.30pm Wombourne and Springdale Methodist Churches Justice and Peace group will be showing this film at Springdale Methodist Church, Warstones Road, Wolverhampton WV4 4LE. From a Palestinian producer, it has a particular focus on the Palestinian Christian community, tracing events from 1947 to the present day. Lasting approximately one hour, there will be opportunity for conversation afterwards before Palestinian refreshments.
This is a response to the Kairos Britain report which was launched in August 2013; the film is a good beginning to understanding the present day conflict - it is poignant but not 'overdone'.
