Poverty – How do you help beyond emergency aid?
A workshop/conversation about how and what you as a church/deacon can do more than providing emergency aid. How do you bring up financial problems, how do you recognize poverty, what you can or cannot do as a church/deacon and what resources are available.
The aim is to exchange experiences, gain knowledge and go home/church with new information to work with.
Stewardship and sustainability
A workshop/conversation about possibilities adress this as a church or community member. Are you already working on it or could you still use inspiration? It’s applicable for making the church building more sustainable, but also your own household or by participating in the Energy Bank (good for your wallet!), or participating in World Clean Up Day around your church building.
Most churches are focused on their own congregation members, but also want to be of significance to the neighborhood. How to go about that? In this workshop you can gain inspiration from the practice of the projects Serve the City and Partners in the District. Churches jointly commit themselves to helping people in their neighborhood. Through collaboration, communities that are small or aging can each contribute in their own way. That is inspiring and connecting!
Attention is also paid to how these activities can be financed, own financing, fundraising, etc.
Register for the diaconal day HERE.
