Conversations are taking place to explore the development of an Anabaptist Network in Ireland.
There has been increasing interest in the Anabaptist tradition in various places in Ireland, so the time might be right to strengthen links and develop a network here.
If you are interested in knowing more about this, please contact Gordon McDade: email@example.com
For several years the Anabaptist Network had a study group in Birmingham. This came to a natural end as people moved on, but a new group has just started, which plans to meet every 4-6 weeks. Nine people met in February for the first time.

Simon Barrow writes: 'This book recasts the debate about religion, politics and the secular state. It creates the possibility of a different, more fruitful kind of conversation about how to live Christianly in a mixed-belief society.'
