Faith and Society Update - November 2019

Welcome to this month’s Update full of news and resources for your church.

This Sunday is Remembrance Sunday and we have updated our Remembrance prayers with a link to some reflections in British Sign Language from Baptist minister Susan Myatt and friends, which can be downloaded to use in your church.

With the General Election on 12 December, our Joint Public Issues Team will soon be launching a new resource for churches - Love, Pray, Vote.    This will include policy briefings on key issues, including Public services: housing, education, social care, healthcare; Poverty in the UK; Refugees and Migration; Climate Emergency;     Britain in the world: defence, aid, trade; Union in the UK; Brexit.   They will also include questions for reflection on these issues, and questions to ask your MP candidates at hustings events.  

We are currently reviewing our national communications and would really value your thoughts and reflections. We have created a survey which should only take 10 minutes to complete and would help us enormously.  Please click here to access the survey - many thanks..
