On 23rd June each of us will be asked to answer the following question:
Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?
As Christians, we believe all things are under the Lordship of Christ (Romans 13:1), that includes politics too. We therefore offer the following resources to help you as you prayerfully consider which way to vote – in or out. This is a limited selection and is not designed to tell you which way to vote, but to help you include Jesus as you make this decision. May God guide you as you Think, pray and vote.

Joint Public Issues Team

A combined venture, utilising the expertise of the Baptist Union, the Methodist Church and the United Reformed Church in the area of public issues. The Team aims to enable Churches to work together in living out the gospel of Christ in the Church and in wider society. They aim to promote equality and justice by influencing those in power and by energising and supporting local congregations.

Christians in Politics

Christians in Politics is an all-party, non-denominational platform for Christians involved, or seeking to get involved, in politics and public life.

Reimagining Europe

Reimagining Europe’s central aim is to create a space for Christian reflection and debate on Britain’s future relationship with Europe ahead of the forthcoming referendum on whether Britain should remain a member of the EU.
