A round-up of news from around the United Reformed Church (URC) over the past seven days: 29 August to 5 September.

Thetford URC in Norfolk has found a simple way to show that part of its mission is to bring peace, show peace and pray for peace, by installing a peace pole in its gardens.

The church has taken part in World Peace’s peace pole project, a global movement
to spread the universal message “May Peace Prevail On Earth”.

Each peace pole bears the message in different languages on each of its four or six sides.

You can make your own from reclaimed materials and make it eco-friendly.
