Churches across UK to tune in to 3-Minute Warning Video on YouTube this Sunday

Churches across the UK will interrupt their worship this Sunday to watch a three-minute warning video about the Equality Bill, which is due to be voted on in the House of Commons the following day.

Christian Concern for our Nation believes the Bill is the biggest state intervention into people's private expression of their faith since the Reformation.

Director Andrea Minichiello-Williams will tell Christians that if the Bill goes through, their church could not advertise for a "Christian youth worker", but just a "youth worker". The role of worship leader, often pivotal in any church, could no longer be restricted to Christians.

Andrea Minichiello Williams commented, "Christians and Churches across this nation need to be aware that this Bill has enormous implications for their day-to-day functioning. If it is passed in its present form, the Equality Bill will result in churches and Christian organisations having to recruit people to key positions who are unsympathetic to the need to reflect Christ and to worship Him through their work. That will in turn affect the way in which Jesus Christ is perceived by those served by the Church and its ministries".

The video can be watched on YouTube and the Christian Concern for our Nation website. Christians will also be urged to sign David Skinner's anti-Equality Bill petition on the No 10 Downing St website, which again can be accessed via www.ccfon.org.

ENDS.
