Irish Baptist Networks & Christians in Science face 2 face evening in Belfast

Irish Baptist NetworksIrish Baptist Networks and Christians in Science invite you to a face 2 face evening with Revd Dr John Weaver on Tuesday 18th June 2019 at 7:30pm in Windsor Baptist Church, 140 Malone Avenue BT9 6ET.

Is our response to Climate Change a discipleship matter? In this interactive event, John Weaver will present a biblical challenge on Creation Care to help us stop and think afresh about our responsibilities both as individuals and churches. This will then be followed with a time for discussion and feedback.

Representatives from Tear Fund, A Rocha, Eco-Congregation and Jubilee Farm have been invited to join the event and contribute to the discussion, offering information and insights on their respective work.

Climate Change issues have been constantly in the news recently ... with the Extinction Rebellion Rallies ... with a 16 year old Swedish schoolgirl, Greta Thunberg, inspiring many and addressing the House of Commons ... with Sir David Attenborough’s TV programmes on Climate Change .... and with the recent U N study warning that ... “human activity is eroding nature’s ability to sustain life on earth...with future generations at risk of starvation and thirst.”

John Weaver is a scientist who became a Baptist Minister. He is the Chair of the International Baptist Theological Studies Centre, Amsterdam, was a College tutor in Oxford and was Principal of South Wales Baptist College. A former president of the Baptist Union of Great Britain, John is now its spokesperson and advisor on environmental issues. He is a Vice President of the John Ray Initiative connecting Environment, Science and Christianity.

This event should be of interest to all ages. The programme will run from 7:30pm to 9:15pm followed by tea and coffee. View the event flier here.
