Celtic Saints – Models for the Modern Church

10–12 June 2022 (Fri–Sun)

The Covid pandemic is a wake up call to save planet earth. Monotheistic religions are dismissed as writing off creation. So the creation-friendly Celtic Christian tradition becomes vital. For 1700 years Christianity has been hostage to colonial frameworks. In contrast the early churches in Celtic lands loved the poor, followed indigenous patterns and evolved monastic ‘villages of God’ which included all people and aspects of life. We will explore a new Celtic uprising.
