Given the current Coronavirus situation, all safeguarding training is cancelled until further notice. This includes the ‘Train the Trainer‘ sessions planned for 20 and 21st April and the meeting of Circuit Safeguarding Officers planned for 28th April.

Our Deputy Chair, Revd Dr Barbara Glasson, has been involved in putting together a new booklet, ‘Acting in God’s Love: Christian Witness in a Multi-Religious World’. This practical theological resource uses the document 'Christian Witness in a Multi-Religious World: Recommendations for Conduct' produced by the World Council of Churches (WCC) and the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA). It aims to help you gain a practical understanding towards application of the guidelines, provide a wider perspective of the UK context and develop deeper theological reflection on interfaith engagement.
Copies of the booklet can be downloaded from the Churches Together in Britain & Ireland website.
