Christians in Politics
|This article relies too much on references to primary sources. (July 2006)|
In the UK, Christians in Politics brings together Christians on the Left, the Liberal Democrat Christian Forum and the Conservative Christian Fellowship, which are the official bodies representing Christians and Christianity in, respectively, the Labour Party, the Liberal Democrats Party, and the Conservative Party.
As an umbrella body for organisations with distinctive and conflicting policies, Christians in Politics creates a platform for churches and Christian organisations to obtain information on an equal basis from each of the parties. Christians in Politics also acts as a liaison for conferences such as Greenbelt Festival and Spring Harvest in requesting speakers from each of the parties. Christians in Politics has no political position of its own, and is theologically neutral in relation to the various streams which exist with the UK Christian churches.
