95 WAYS TO CHANGE THE WORLD!

The JUBILEE CENTRE has just launched a campaign to crowdsource a set of new theses marking the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, called ’95 ways to change the world’. The initiative at  http://www.Reformation2017.org is aimed especially at Christians aged 33 or under (which is how old Martin Luther was in 1517), although anyone may suggest a new thesis.  A £500 prize will be awarded for the best new thesis, and training will be offered to those who want to turn their vision for change into an actual project.

This is unique in inviting people from around the world to share their vision and ideas for promoting ‘true human flourishing’. Please contact Calum Samuelson, the project manager on C.Samuelson@jubilee-centre.org or 01223 755148, who can explain more about this initiative, or answer any questions you may have.  Twitter hashtag #truehumanflourishing and our handle is @2017Reformation.

EXHIBITION AT SENATE HOUSE LIBRARY University of London

The consequences of taking England outside the family of Catholic states – arguably the first ‘Brexit’ – were profound, and had a major impact on London throughout the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, as it grew into one of the world’s largest cities. Focusing on London through the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, this exhibition traces the impact of the Reformation on culture and society; the way its communications industry drove change; and the consequences of the emergence of a new world order. http://www.senatehouselibrary.ac.uk/exhibitions-and-events/exhibitions/reformation

Reformation runs from 23 June to 15 December 2017.


STILL REFORMING - Reformation on London's Doorsteps

A number of congregations and communities in London have joined forces to commemorate the anniversary. Throughout the year, once a month, a different London church is profiled with its own particular history, story and relationship to the Reformation. 12 churches for the 12 months of the year. For each month the church responsible will share an event, a story, one or two thesis, refreshments  as we make the most of the Reformation Anniversary and the opportunity it offers to learn more about the multitude of congregations in London made up of British as well immigrants, have made in the UK. Read more in the booklet 'Still Reforming' click here or go to current events on http://www.reformation500.uk/events-overview.htm.
