The Harvest period is a great time to get people thinking about where their food comes from. Many churches have a 'thanksgiving' service around this time of year, which often involves getting people to donate food, which is then redistributed to needy people.

Five Christians were arrested for gluing themselves together to block one of the entrances to the DSEi arms fair last week.

SPEAK’s new campaign, Seeding Change (www.speak.org.uk/campaigns/seeding-change), is all about making the food system fairer, and bringing in the values of God’s kingdom to the way we produce and consume food.

Just one week to go until the start of Vocal Training 2013 - War No More! And we're excited to be releasing the program for the event.
