Justice & Peace Group

The Swindon Deanery J&P Group has about a dozen members from across the parishes in the Deanery and beyond, who work closely on issues related to Justice & Peace.

Our Group Chair is Steve Aftelak.

Our Activities

What sort of things do we do? Here is a flavour – in the last eighteen months we have run a Peace Hour, provided a large barbeque for refugees and asylum seekers in Lydiard Park, and we have given lifts to refugees and their families to a town pantomime.  We also promote CAFOD World Gifts in the run up to Christmas.
