Welcome to
Chigwell Justice & Peace Centre


“Adapt yourselves no longer to the pattern of this present world, but let your minds be remade and your whole nature thus transformed.”   Romans 12:2

Environmental Concerns    Human Trafficking    Millennium Development Goals .... What happened???

Take action today!!

Our work is an integral part of the mission and identity of the Sisters of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. We represent, reflect and respond to their concerns in all we do.

The Centre is home to a variety of resources on a wide range of issues. We also act as a sign-posting facility for sisters, friends and enquirers looking for information on justice issues and the social teaching of the Church. If we can’t supply the information you are looking for, we will know someone who can!


Over the years we have been involved in researching, educating and campaigning on issues such as Globalisation, International Debt, Trade & Aid, Food Sovereignty, Migration in all its forms, Child Soldiers, Disability issues, HIV/AIDs and lots more. We have supported peaceful protests at G8 summits, anti-war rallies and the Make Poverty History Campaign. 

Today, our main focus centres around three vital issues:

Environmental Concerns

“I come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”   John 10:10

If you have come
to help me
you are wasting
your time
if you have come
because your
is bound up
with mine
then let us
work together

Queensland, 1970s.

The Centre was established in 1995 by the Sisters of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary to promote reflection, education and action for justice, peace and integrity of creation. We work alongside sisters, associates, co-workers and other organisations, religious or other, who share our values and goals. We challenge both local and global structures and systems which maintain or contribute to the suffering of people who are denied the ‘fullness of life’ in our world today.  We research, raise awareness, and campaign on the many justice issues which surface in the day to day work of the Sisters.
