Pax Christi offer talks and workshops for young people in schools, parishes, and at youth events across England and Wales. These workshops encourage critical reflection on issues of peace and nonviolence and the role of peacemaking as part of the Christian life.
Pax Christi and the Work of Christian Peacemaking – This workshop is designed particularly for students studying GCSE Religious Studies and needing to focus on the work of a faith-based organisation that works for peace.
Christian Peacemaking – Why should a Christian work for peace? This workshop explores Christ’s message of peace and how we can put it into practice.
Holy Disobedience – Inspired by the life of Blessed Franz Jägerstätter, we look at how the work of peacemaking occasionally means doing what is difficult and unpopular.
Human Security – How do we build a safe and secure world? This workshop looks at models of international security and explores how we might create a peaceful world.
Israel/ Palestine- With a focus on the separation wall as a means of building a just peace.
Conflict and Violence – Conflict is a part of everyday life. Here we explore how we respond to conflict positively, deal with the problem, and avoid violence.
Who we work with – we primarily work with young people aged between 14 and 18 (school years 10 – 13), although we are happy to work with all primary and secondary year groups.
Where we work – Throughout England and Wales.
Numbers – The workshops usually last about an hour and are most effective with groups of between 20 and 30 participants.
Cost – We encourage schools to make a donation to cover our travel costs and other expenses incurred.
