10.30am – 12.00noon: Workshop 1: Forging a New Solidarity

Theodora Hawksley will explore the theme of Solidarity. Despite the resurgence of populist nationalism, the Covid-19 pandemic has shown us just how globally interdependent we really are. It’s also shown us that some of that interdependence takes the form of exploitation. So, as we emerge from the pandemic, how might we forge new relationships and mechanisms of solidarity on global, national and local levels?

6.00pm – 8.00pm: Workshop 2: We Tell Stories

We tell stories because we are made of stories. As refugee week draws to a close Stories of Hope and Home, a group which empowers refugees and asylum seekers to creatively explore and share their own stories in their own words, will lead us in a workshop enabling us to listen and learn from one another's stories. Which stories that are often excluded from public narratives do we need to hear and share? Which parts of our own stories need to be explored so that we can live more fully as the people we are called to be?

6.00pm – 7.30pm: Workshop 3: Dismantling Sacrifice Workshop

Francis Stewart will use biblical models of salvation to ask if the narrative of sacrifice is appropriate in our current context. Is it good to speak of workers sacrificing themselves to overcome the virus? Should we be making analogies between the pandemic and war? Do these narratives serve solidarity or hide underlying problems?

8.30pm – 9.30pm: Final prayer and Reflections
