It can be a daunting task for churches, mission agencies and Christian charities to keep up-to-date with their responsibilities as employers, as well as keeping abreast of employment law and HR issues that they need to be aware of in their particular context.

Equality legislation rightly seeks to protect individuals against discrimination, something which Christian employers should wholeheartedly welcome. But what about when the Christian ethos of an organisation seems to conflict with the general principle that people should not be discriminated against on the grounds of, for example, religious belief, sexual orientation and gender re-assignment?

At what point does the law allow them to say “that’s not in keeping with our beliefs”? And how can Christian organisations and churches ensure that when they seek to apply exceptions to this general principle that they do so correctly, and that everything reasonably possible has been done to assert the organisation’s position in a way that will give the best chance of defending a discrimination claim?

During the course of the afternoon we’ll look at topics such as:

When can you assert that a role must be undertaken by a Christian? How does the law define ‘discrimination’ and how do we define a ‘Christian’ in such circumstances? Getting the job description right to justify that the role must be undertaken by a Christian How do you test whether someone meets that requirement – statements of faith, references, codes of conduct etc.? The cost is £15 to people from GC member agencies and churches. Cost for non GC members is £40. Tea and coffee will be available from 3:15pm.

MAP and Evangelical Alliance would love to invite you to an afternoon training session on data protection and GDPR at Belfast Bible College. In May 2018, the Data Protection Act is being replaced by GDPR, the new standard for data protection, and it gives an increased responsibility to all of us, to ensure we have the necessary processes, documents, systems and training in place to protect the personal data we process.

We need to get this right, not just because it is the law and the risks can be high if we suffer a data breach or complaint, but because as Christian organisations it is an opportunity to demonstrate how we care for and respect our supporters, clients and staff.

Nick Swain is an accredited EU GDPR practitioner and will use this training day to both introduce you to GDPR and what you need to do, but also to help you get started. After the introductory session, Nick will run workshops on key topics that you will choose from on the day, so that you will begin work to take away and continue, as you prepare for GDPR. Nick will also signpost a wide range of resources, and other places you can get help.

This event will run from 12.00 – 17.00 at Belfast Bible College. The cost for MAP/EA members £15, Non MAP/EA members £30. To attend this event go to eventbright.co.uk

Church agencies lead Norwich’s Modern Slavery Summit

In January 2018 The Church of England’s Clewer Initiative and the Eastern Baptist Association are co-hosting a Modern Slavery Summit in Norwich to help train communities in Norfolk combat modern slavery.

A Modern Slavery Summit will take place on Saturday, January 27 at Witard Road Baptist Church in Norwich, giving attendees a thorough grounding on what modern slavery looks like in the UK and how to spot the signs.

The newly launched Clewer Initiative, a project which forms part of the Church of England’s approach to eradicating modern slavery and the Eastern Baptist Association are co-hosting the Norwich summit.

Training will be delivered by the public body, the Gangmasters and Local Abuse Authority, with input from local police.

The focus is on training people in the key hallmarks of modern slavery, and equipping them to move forward in partnership with local police and statutory agencies.

The summit starts at 10.30am until 2.30pm. It is free to attend.

Everyone who calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.' (Joel 2:32) The 2018 day conference will explore the meaning and significance of Pentecost for mission today in the light of Peter’s exposition of Joel. What does it mean to engage in God’s mission in these ‘Last Days’? Who is to speak for God today? What is the message they are to proclaim? The Last Day and the last days conference promises a fresh encounter with the apostolic teaching that laid the foundations of Christian mission.

Our Speaker Rev Alan Purser is a bible teacher who specialises in expository preaching and the theology of mission. As an Anglican clergyman Alan has served in a number of parishes in the UK and abroad and, most recently, spent 13 years working for Crosslinks. During this time he also travelled extensively in Europe and Africa. Alan retired in 2016 and, with his wife Anne, now lives in Buxton, Derbyshire where they are active members of Trinity Church.

The afternoon will be devoted mainly to group discussion at which practical solutions are sought to improve the quality of support available. Delegates will be asked to explore areas for greater co-operation amongst their charities and undertake to carry out some follow-up activity after the conference.

Attendance for delegates will be free and it is suggested that each participating charity sends two delegates to provide mutual support after the day is over. People are asked to register and lunch is provided. The event is sponsored by Living Wage Norwich.

Pilgrimage into Mission Conference

03 February 2018

Norwich Cathedral

The international surge in popularity of pilgrimage creates significant opportunities in mission for local parishes. Is your church along the route of an ancient pilgrimage or modern long-distance path? Is it associated with a local saint or holy person, or was it the home of a local shrine or holy well? Do you have treasures you long to share with others? The combination of heritage and holiness is a powerful draw for contemporary people and provides an ideal context in which to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

The cost of the training day is £15 per person and includes a light lunch.

What are the 'Going Against the Grain' days all about? Well we decided that actually getting a load of men together to worship God, have a laugh together and be inspired from the Bible is essential, so that's what we want to do. We have called these 'Going Against the Grain' days as we are also releasing a brand new book by Nathan Blackaby, focused on how we can live as effective Christians in today's busy world. Men of strength and honour, focus and fight but also men who surrender to a greater cause and a greater king. Lets see a culture shifting amount of men give their lives to Jesus, our captain and brother, rescuer and friend. Fancy some of that? Then come along, half a day, bacon roll - or the meat free option; and join us!

A chance for those involved in Muslim ministry to network and work together Learning from the Global Church about Muslim Evangelism

The Global Connections Muslim World Forum continues to examine issues which are relevant to the work and activities of agencies and churches engaging with Muslims around the world and locally and the Forum meeting on Wednesday 14th March 2018, will look at related issues ...

African, Asian, Middle Eastern, Korean, Chinese and Latin American Christians are engaging with Muslim communities: what can we learn from their methods, approaches and experiences? What about Christians born and raised in Muslim majority contexts? Are their methods adaptable for a UK context? Will their approaches work if applied by missionaries from the UK? What differences are there between working in Muslim majority and Muslim diaspora contexts?

A panel of speakers from different non-Western countries and regions will lead our consideration.

The meeting starts with refreshments (tea and coffee) at 11:30am and finishes at 4:00pm.

The cost is £15 to people from GC member agencies and churches. Cost for non GC members is £45. Drinks are included in the price but please bring your own lunch.

Women & Faith 2018

16 - 18 March 2018

Abernethy Nethybridge

This weekend break at Abernethy Nethybridge is a refreshing and relaxing time away in early Spring. Women (aged 16+) are all welcome to come and join us for a time of relaxation, teaching, worship, fellowship and fun in the beautiful Cairngorms National Park.

This weekend is a great time for fellowship, making new friends and having some quality “me” time.

Our speaker, Jan Peach, has a long association with Abernethy, having worked in the kitchen and on the Office teams at both Ardeonaig and Nethybridge, and then as the Youth and Schools coordinator at Nethybridge. Jan is married to Matt (ex-Chief Instructor at Nethy) and has two children. She has run (and spoken at) women’s weekends in Northern Ireland, and is passionate about women engaging with all of Scripture and spending time with the One who is most important in our lives. She is also passionate about the local church, the importance of church as family, and youth work and young people coming to know Jesus through camps. Coming from Northern Ireland, Jan is excited to be sharing God’s word on St Patrick’s weekend! Jan is a great communicator and loves teaching from the Bible, and we are really excited to hear all she has to say!

We're thrilled to have Fiona Stewart, the Creative Director of Foolproof Creative Arts with us. Fiona works with the Cairn Movement and leads their Glasgow Centre of Mission.

LIFE. FAITH. ADVENTURE.

What are the 'Going Against the Grain' days all about? Well we decided that actually getting a load of men together to worship God, have a laugh together and be inspired from the Bible is essential, so that's what we want to do. We have called these 'Going Against the Grain' days as we are also releasing a brand new book by Nathan Blackaby focused on how we can be live as effective Christians in today's busy world. Men of strength and honour, focus and fight but also men who surrender to a greater cause and a greater king. Lets see a culture shifting amount of men give their lives to Jesus, our captain and brother, rescuer and friend. Fancy some of that? Then come along, half a day, bacon roll - or the meat free option; and join us!

Join us at Abernethy Ardeonaig, by Loch Tay for a weekend of faith and walking. Develop some mountaincraft skills and enjoy the company of like-minded women to walk the stunning Perthshire countryside. In the evening we will have some worship, with some homebaking and chats by the fire in one of our two cosy lounges.

Why not bring your daughter for this weekend - as long as she can walk a beginner level walk as a minimum, even if she is under 16 then she would be most welcome and we will arrange an age-relevant evening programme for the girls!

We may offer two levels of walk, beginner and more advanced, depending on your previous walking experience and current level of fitness. Although the weekend is intended to be a relaxing break, this is not to say there isn't the option for a longer venture with the potential of topping out on a fantastic Perthshire peak.

Our speaker is Diana Hall, the Rector of St Anne’s Church in Dunbar, East Lothian and an occasional contributor to BBC Religion and Ethics broadcasts. She is passionate about the potential of the local church to be Jesus’ hands and feet at the very centre of community life. A native of Duns in the Scottish Borders, she was formerly a Court of Session litigation solicitor (with a career break as Office Manager at Abernethy Ardeonaig in the middle!) She enjoys wild swimming and good coffee shops, and is kept on her toes by her cat Cuthbert and spaniel Oswald Doglet. She blogs occasionally at www.pausingplace.blog.
