Scotland: Approaching Gender Justice

Home |  News | Scotland: Approaching Gender Justice

‘Loving One Another: A biblical discussion toolkit on gender-based violence’, a joint publication by the Global Partnerships Committee of the Scottish Episcopal Church and Christian Aid Scotland, will be a focus of an event ‘Approaching Gender Justice’ in Edinburgh on Wednesday 30 November.

The resource is for use in churches and looks at the issue of gender justice, including gender based violence, in faith communities. The material is based on similar material from the Anglican Church in Brazil which has been used with great success in that country.

The launch will take place on Wednesday 30 November 2016 at the General Synod Office, 21 Grosvenor Crescent, Edinburgh EH12 5EE, Scotland, at 12 noon, followed by sandwiches and coffee. The event will finish by 2.00pm.

The Most Rev David Chillingworth, Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church, will give a word of endorsement and the Rev Kathy Galloway and the Rev Sally Foster-Fulton, respectively the past and current Head of Christian Aid Scotland, will say a few words about the genesis of the project and their hopes for it.

The six week course is for women and men of all ages and backgrounds and can be used in ecumenical settings. Facilitators will be available to help congregations work with the material.

Gender justice and gender-based violence are often issues that congregations shy away from discussing in their own context. It is hoped that this Bible based study programme will provide a safe space for everyone to be able to engage with the material and the issues it explores.

The publication is downloadable from the Scottish Episcopal Church and Christian Aid websites with some hard copies also available free, with a charge only for postage and packing.
