The Christian church not only has a local mandate but a national one as well. However, it is not always possible for a local church to have a direct influence into the national spheres of politics, law and the media; that’s why we partner with Christian Concern.
Christian Concern have a passion to see the United Kingdom return to the Christian faith.
Our nation has been shaped and defined by this faith for hundreds of years. Yet in the last few decades, the nation has largely turned her back on Jesus and embraced alternative ideas such as secular liberal humanism, moral relativism and sexual licence. The fruit of this can be seen in widespread family breakdown, immorality and social disintegration.
Christian Concern believe that this nation has a hope, and that hope can be found in Jesus Christ. On this basis they seek to awaken the Church so that we are passionate about our faith and become a light and a witness to the nation.
Whilst engaging with the church Christian Concern work to infuse a biblical worldview into every aspect of society. They seek to be a strong Christian voice in the public sphere, arguing passionately for the truth of the Gospel and defending the historic freedoms that we have enjoyed in this nation for so long. We believe that by doing so, society as a whole will benefit.
They seek to highlight injustice, change public opinion on issues of key importance and affect policy at the highest levels. Christian Concern engage on a broad large range of issues, including abortion, adoption and fostering, bioethics, marriage, education, employment, end of life, equality, family, free speech, Islamism, religious freedom, the sex trade, social issues and issues relating to sexual orientation.
As part of our partnership with Christian Concern it has been great to have Ade Omooba, co-founder of Christian Concern, come to speak at a couple of our Sunday meetings.
