ChurchesToolkit for Remembrance of Slavery Past

The three-part interactive Bible study material from ICP -More color in the church- has been included by MissieNederland in the Churches Toolkitfor Remembrance Slavery Past.See how you and your church can reflect on the commemoration year that starts on July 1, during Keti Koti.

For example, there will be a national memorial service on Friday 30 June, led by the Council of Churches in the Netherlands, in the heart of Amsterdam. There are no more seats available in the church, but the service is also being streamed by the EO.

Micha Nederland offers a church package, aimed at organizing a special service (for example on Sunday 2 July) or a theme evening.

Do you want to dive deeper into the theme with your church, in small groups? Then order the free material from ‘Meer kleur in de kerk’, which ICP has developed to help churches start a conversation about themes such as racism, diversity and reconciliation. This allows you to work together in three evenings or over a longer period.

Some initial reactions to ‘Meer kleur in de kerk’ have already been received:

This really gives a lot of (new) insights.
Brings the subject closer by empathizing.
Especially the conversation with Hans and Sara made an impression.

What it does to someone when you have to search for your identity in a new country.
