The new edition of Just Now for Summer 2019 is out now.

This time we explore 'missionary encounters'. When we heed Christ's call to discipleship and mission, whom do we meet? And, we ask, who is the missionary to whom?

Stories this time include:

  • The welcome which parishes in Derby are preparing for Syrian refugees
  • Plans for Refugee Week in June and Sea Sunday in July
  • Early findings from the Faith into Action survey which parishes around the diocese have completed
  • And profiles of missionary disciples from Loughborough, Cleethorpes and Bishop's House!

The Nottingham Diocesan Justice and Peace Commission works towards exploring the causes of injustice, increasing awareness among others of these issues, praying that unjust situations might be changed for the better, working for justice both at home and abroad and providing practical assistance for those in need. The Commission works through parish groups, ecumenical groups, inter-faith groups, through individuals and other contacts. Please contact the Justice and Peace Fieldworker, Paul Bodenham, at


The 2019 Justice and Peace Assembly will be on Saturday 2 November at St Thomas More, Leicester.

Join us for a day of reconciliation and building the common good in the wake of Brexit.


Fostering communities of loving service

God is love, and he calls us to love, generously and joyfully. Here in the Diocese of Nottingham an opportunity is emerging to respond to that call afresh.

We’re calling the project Faith into Action. Find out how you can be part of it.

The catalyst is a grant from the national Caritas Social Action Network, matched by support from our own Justice and Peace Commission. The grant comes at a fertile moment, as Bishop Patrick is encouraging us to encounter Christ anew, grow as disciples and look outward in mission.
