Peace Fellowship

Peace Fellowship logoThe United Reformed Church Peace Fellowship is a group of United Reformed Church people who accept God's call to human beings to live in peace and who are committed to discerning and obeying the urgent call of God to pursue Peace with Justice in the world.

Set up to raise the profile of issues of peace and justice in the overall mission strategy of the United Reformed Church, The United Reformed Church Peace Fellowship has, since 1999, encouraged members in churches to address peace and justice issues locally, and worked with the Church & Society Department at Church House. We continue to welcome contributions and suggestions from all members of the fellowship and are working to ensure that we keep in touch regularly, providing news and advance notice of important events in the peace calendar.

Representation at the Network of Christian Peace Organisations and the Fellowship of Reconciliation is drawn from the United Reformed Church Peace Fellowship committee and we are building our links with both organisations. Individual members of the fellowship are encouraged to consider joining the Fellowship of Reconciliation (www.for.org.uk).

Over the years, the United Reformed Church through General Assembly has passed resolutions and made other statements on matters of peace and justice. Resolutions have also been passed on issues of nuclear weapons proliferation and the arms trade.

The United Reformed Church also works with ecumenical partners through the Joint Public Issues Team to respond to urgent matters as they arise. Representation on this is drawn from staff at Church House, and information is circulated to the members of the URC through their newsletter.
