United Kingdom

CPT launched its first regional group outside of North America in May 2004. CPT-UK came together with the purpose of building a presence in the region, resulting in the October 2009 European Training which took place in London. 

European Convergence

In March 2011 European CPTers and supporters met in Berlin for the first CPT European Convergence to continue the conversation about establishing support for CPT in Europe and to identify opportunities for peacemaking. In May 2015 European CPTers met in London at Union Chapel. As part of the convergence, we joined with the Anabaptist Network for a Faith Activism day. We also joined with London Catholic Worker to do a very powerful witness in solidarity with refugees who are drowning trying to get to Europe. In March 2017, European CPTers had another meeting in the UK- this time in Yorkshire. This included a visit from CPT's Executive Director, Sarah Thompson. 

CPT UK Outreach

CPT UK currently employs an outreach worker called Ruth Wilde (uk@cpt.org) one day a week. We are hoping to eventually raise the money to have a full-time or possibly four-day-a-week Outreach Worker in the UK, reaching people in churches, Quaker meetings and learning institutions, and encouraging people to take part in CPT Delegations around the world.

If you are interested in meeting with CPTers in the UK, discussing a delegation or hosting an event about peacemaking, please also contact uk@cpt.org.
