Please join in and together let’s send out prayers, meditations and heartfelt wishes for peace.

The WPWP 50th Anniversary celebrations began with a recent online Seminar with a number of the recent recipients of the Wilson/Hikes Peace Award.  Contributors spoke about how they used their Award and what they are doing now.  We heard about work with refugees, peace education and an update from Burundi about work to support people there. 

Gatherings are held worldwide to celebrate the week and a leaflet of interfaith prayers and reflections is available each year.

Do join us in whichever way feels right for you.’
