At Greenbelt this year we encouraged festival-goers to seriously re-think what modern day mission looks like, to look at the world from a different perspective (with a competitive upside down jigsaw challenge) and consider whether they would like to take part in one of USPG’s short-term placements with a world church partner.
We also had Filippino priest Revd Chris Ablon with us, sharing about the churches radical mission of peace which is landing Filippino Bishops in prison as they stand with the most oppressed in their communities. You can download a template letter to write to the IFI to support their call for Bishop Carlo to be cleared of all charges. Our own Revd Evie Vernon O’Brien also took a very prominent and creative role in this year’s Communion service which focused on the Windrush which you can watch here.
If you’d like to catch up on some of our talks you can see them here.
