Resources for Peacemaking Sunday are available to download from the Joint Public Issues Team website.
A service outline and Powerpoint presentation reflect the theme of Walk for Peace. They draw on the ‘Kenyan Champions Walk for Peace’ undertaken by world-famous athletes, including Ezekiel Kemboi, Paul Tergat and Tegla Loroupe, who led a 22-day ‘walk for peace’ ending on 6 August 2015 across northern Kenya to raise money and awareness for the peace education programmes their communities need to curb rising inter-ethnic violence.
The service outline has been prepared by Ruby Beech, past Vice-President of Methodist Conference, with support from David Brown of the Aegis Trust, a British charity that campaigns against genocide and supported the walk for peace and related work. The outline can be adapted to meet the needs and worship patterns of particular congregations.
