IPCA VIII – 2020 Conference Bangkok
Everyone in today’s world is in need of hope – and prisoners across the globe are no exception. To address this need, the International Prison Chaplains’ Association, founded in 1985 at the World Council of Churches’ ecumenical institute in Bossey, Switzerland, has made hope the theme of its eighth Quinquennial Worldwide Conference, for which preparations are now underway in Thailand.
200 delegates from across IPCA’s six worldwide regions are expected to attend the 2020 conference, focusing on the theme of “A living hope” – a phrase from the Bible book of 1 Peter 1:3. Find out more HERE
Justice Reflections is an ecumenical collection of theological papers appearing three times a year. The publication incorporates worldwide papers linking Christian ideas with matters of justice. Each issue consists of up to eight papers in English of 2,000 – 8,000 words on theological insights into ethical, moral, pastoral or restorative aspects of justice. IPCA is presently working out a partnership arrangement with Justice Reflections and we look forward to being able to share this with you soon. In the meantime please do visit their website.
IPCA’s current Worldwide Steering Committee was elected at the 2015 Sydney International Conference
