Counting the Cost of Coronavirus : 4 Jun, ONLINE

With the right strategy, churches can help improve the outcome for those experiencing financial hardship right now.

The financial challenges facing our communities are far more complex and overwhelming than we have ever experienced, but we believe the Church is well placed to respond. The number of people claiming unemployment benefit in the UK jumped by more than 856,000 in April, the first full month of the coronavirus lockdown.

Helplines have been inundated with queries from people who are confused about their options, including a growing number who find themselves unable to access government support schemes.

Demand for support is set to increase exponentially this summer as payment holidays and state-backed furlough schemes come to an end and redundancies increase.

Join our Cinnamon Connect Webinar where we’ll explore what churches can do to help those experiencing financial hardship now and in the months ahead.

On Thursday 4 June at 11 am Nick Amis, from Cinnamon Network will be talking to Jenny Herrera, Executive Director of Acts 435; Heather Keates, CEO of Community Money Advice; and Paula Stringer, CEO of CAP UK.

Nick, Jenny, Heather and Paula will be discussing:

What financial challenges are people currently facing

  • How are financial needs likely to change over the next few months
  • What can churches do to support individuals and families
  • What organisations and tools are available to help churches respond

“Jubilee for the Earth: New Rhythms, New Hope” – a webinar for the 2020 Season of Creation : 8 Jun, ONLINE

From September 1 to October 4, the Christian family celebrates the good gift of creation. This global celebration began in 1989 with the Ecumenical Patriarchate’s recognition of the day of prayer for creation and is now embraced by the wide ecumenical community.

This year, the global reach of the novel coronavirus revealed our shared human nature and the inter-connectivity of our economies, political structures, health care systems, food production chains, energy and transportation systems in devastating ways. The pandemic also demonstrated that the entire web is rooted in the earth and limited by the earth’s capacity to sustain our economic and ecological demands. The unjust effects of climate change are a consequence of our inability to find a sustainable balance of this web.

During the Season of Creation, we unite as one family in Christ, celebrating the bonds we share with each other and with “every living creature on Earth.” (Genesis 9:10) The Christian family celebrates the season by spending time in prayer, considering ways to inhabit our common home more sustainably, and lifting our voices in the public sphere.

On 8 June, speakers from the organisations promoting Season of Creation 2020 will be together in a webinar to reflect on the theme of this year’s edition.

What: “Jubilee for the Earth: New Rhythms, New Hope” – a webinar for the 2020 Season of Creation
When: 8 June 2020, 16:00 – 17:30 (CET)
Where: Zoom (registration link: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_lp2I_plNTpOA9Qf5IJ2gwg)

Speakers:
Ruth Valerio (Tearfund)
Rei Crizaldo (Micah)
Martin Kopp (GreenFaith)
Fr. Joshtrom Kureethadam (Ecology and Creation Sector of the Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development)
Ruth Padilla deBorst (Latin America Theological Fellowship)

Moderated by:
Rev. Dr Chad Rimmer (The Lutheran World Federation)
Rev. Dr Dave Bookless (A Rocha)
