Cambridgeshire Church Leaders commit to working for good of all in our communities

In her first speech as Prime Minister, Theresa May acknowledged that our nation is currently experiencing a “time of great national change”, but that in the midst of that we are called to be a country that works for every one of us, whoever we are and wherever we are from. It is natural to be anxious about the change that lies before us, but as church leaders in Cambridgeshire we commit ourselves and call on our churches not to look inwards or to our own needs, but to draw on the Spirit of our generous self-giving God to reach ever outwards to our whole community for our common good. This will bring different challenges in our different places, but the way to the better future we all long for is to be found in the heart of each one of us, as we seek to live out the Gospel call to love our neighbours as ourselves.”

Statement issued today, Thursday 21sr July, by Bishops Stephen Conway and David Thomson (C of E) and the Revds Simon Goddard (Baptist), Julian Pursehouse (Methodist) and Paul Whittle (URC) on behalf of the Church Leaders Group of Churches Together in Cambridgeshire.
