Opening up God’s House: Gypsy, Roma, Traveller Communities and the Church
Join Dr Steven Horne, author of Gypsies and Jesus: A Traveller Theology* and the Durham Diocesan GTR Chaplain Revd Nicky Chater for an in-person event.
Inclusive church and celebrating diversity can mean many things to many people. What might it mean for those in Christian contexts who wish to support, welcome and minister with people from Gypsy Roma and Traveller communities?
Welcoming and safe workshops will explore:
- The specific needs of participants in relation to their questions and queries about the historical, theological and ecclesial background to GTR communities
- The Theology of GTR communities and church engagement
- Traveller Friendly Churches
- Sanctuary Stopping Places
- What might the practical outcomes and actions be in the NE churches if they really do open up Gods house?
