The Liberal Democrat Christian Forum (LDCF) is an association within the Liberal Democrats that aims to support Christians within the party, and promote the party to other Christians. Its aim is to encourage and enable Christians in their constructive work in politics, being ‘a voice of Christian faith in the Liberal Democrats, and a voice of Liberal Democracy among Christians.’ LDCF believes that Christians should get involved in politics as a way of living out their faith and caring for the oppressed in society. LDCF works with Christians of all denominations, as well as with Christian groups from other major political parties. It offers a forum for debate among members, holds prayer meetings within the Houses of Parliament and events throughout the year. The president of LDCF is Andrew Stunell MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State in the Department for Communities and Local Government. Vice-presidents are Steve Webb MP (Minister for Works and Pensions), Tim Farron MP (President of the Liberal Democrats) and Baroness Sal Brinton. Members include Parliamentarians, activists and councillors from around the UK.
