7 Circles of Peace




Seven Circles - A path to 'Life for All'

The World Council of Churches developed the concept 'The Seven Circles of Peace' (shown in the interactive slideshow below). It is a practical visualisation of how to go about creating a world where there is life and peace. The Village Space uses the Seven Circles to reinforce the need to act. They are:

  • Personal
  • Family
  • Religious and cultural
  • Local community
  • National
  • International
  • Ecological

To be a promoter of life for all people, you need to influence these same seven circles. You do this by creating a ripple effect.

That means it starts with you (the 'me' circle) and the personal desicions you make about how you will live your life.

If you choose to see all these areas as "your business", and choose to be an active promoter of life then the potential for bringing a "fullness of life" for all people is great.

If many people choose to do this then the dream becomes a reality.



Village Space


Village Space involves real life stories of peoples and their struggles to overcome injustice in their communities.

Through the medium of interactive dramatised storytelling the audience is taken on a journey into the lives of peoples and their communities in ‘majority/developing world’ countries.

The use of scripted dialogue, song, dance, movement, music, visuals and simple props, taps into the audiences’ senses, impacting on the heart, mind and emotions. The audience readily empathises with the characters’ feelings of fear, anger, sadness and frustration, as well as determination and hope. Empathy is the beginning of the participants’ motivation to work towards a just world.

The Village Space program is a great educational tool and can be a springboard into specific Key Learning Areas, especially Society and Environment. It provides inspiration for Social Justice Action within the school.

The Village Space program is now running independently of Catholic Mission. All bookings, enquiries and further information can be obtained by visiting
