Our Work » Peace Projects
Everyone can make their own contribution to building a more peaceful world. In our small way, we have made contributions by partnering in a number of peace projects, some with an expressly Christian emphasis and others with a wider appeal.
Peaceworks has become a prime mover is establishing a 'Street Angels' project in Bognor Regis, in partnership with Sussex Police, Churches Together and other key local organisations and churches. Called Arun Angels, the project works to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour through dedicated teams of volunteer 'angels' out on the streets every Saturday night.
Peaceworks co-ordinated Arun Peace Week in November 2008, an initiative developed in partnership with Arun District Council and now a regular annual event. The Peace Week celebrates Arun's cultural diversity at a time of demographic pressure in the region.
Peaceworks has also helped to coordinate the Europe & Africa Restoration Partnership - an epic venture that has been running since 1999 and held conferences in the UK, Belgium, Congo, Gabon, Germany, France, Portugal, Zimbabwe and Rwanda.
