As the Church goes, so goes the culture. Sweeping changes to our nation’s moral and social landscape have coincided with a decline in the Church’s witness. Our culture is confused and there’s a huge need for clear and compassionate Christian witness to provide hope and direction. We’re dedicated to helping the Church recover her voice and speak with confidence on the issues of the day.
The government is facing mounting pressure to extend or even scrap the current consultation on the Gender Recognition Act, which sets out its aims to make changing gender easier. The consultation closes at 11pm on Friday 19th October.

Tim Dieppe, head of public policy at Christian Concern, discusses the government’s response to Baroness Cox’s question to the House of Lords about helping victims of sex-grooming, such as in the case of ‘Sarah’, who is currently being supported by the Christian Legal Centre. He argues that the government is in denial about the Islamic connection to sex-grooming gangs and says it has a long way to go before it really addresses the issue.
At Christian Concern, we’re convinced that the best possible way to live is by following Jesus in every area of our lives. And it’s just as true for societies. The UK has a long and deep Christian heritage; in its laws, its traditions and its institutions. It’s those Christian foundations that have helped the UK flourish – albeit imperfectly – for centuries.
Roger Kiska, of the Christian Legal Centre, comments on how political correctness and preventing offence seem to be more culturally valued than safeguarding children from sexual victimisation. He looks in greater detail at the sexual abuse scandal within the Catholic Church and asks how we might prevent future abuse if stating the facts is, nowadays, deemed as hateful.
The Scottish Government and the Scottish Police are running a hate crime awareness campaign by putting up various posters addressed to ‘bigots’, ‘homophobes’, ‘transphobes’ and others. Tim Dieppe discusses the issues involved, looking at what is a ‘hate crime’, a ‘hate incident’, and who these posters are addressed to. He concludes that the worst of these posters constitutes state anti-Christian propaganda which is intended to intimidate and threaten Christians.
The Supreme Court has ruled unanimously that Ashers bakery’s refusal to make a cake with a slogan supporting same-sex marriage was not discriminatory.
The wonderful good news of Jesus lies at the heart of our ministry. It’s Christ's love that compels us to keep going, knowing that the gospel is the power of God for salvation (Rom 1:16).
The Christian Legal Centre’s Roger Kiska discusses how British schools have moved away from teaching basic primary education, instead choosing to focus on teaching the ideology of 'inclusivity'. Roger explains the reality of their legal obligation and how many schools are not fulfilling it.
The government is currently consulting on whether or not to amend the Gender Recognition Act 2004, asking - amongst other things - if it should be easier for people to change their gender in England and Wales, and potentially forcing the Church to accept same-sex 'marriage'. The proposed changes could both threaten religious freedom and punish people for telling the truth. Here, we give a quick guide to responding to the government's consultation.
