Church Leaders

Listen­ing to church lead­ers, respond­ing to requests, devel­op­ing resources, inspir­ing reflec­tion and action.

We deeply respect the faithful witness of tens of thousands of churches around the country that provide leadership and practical support in the community.

Local church leaders are our key partners. They inspire their congregations to pray for elected representatives (councillors, MPs etc), campaign on important issues and encourage participation in political parties, events and debates. We are keen to support them in this task and deliver seminars on current issues such as human trafficking, end of life issues, and online safety.

These online resources are the result of asking church leaders around the country; ‘What would help you to inspire your congregations to be involved in political and social justice issues?’ We hope that you will find them useful and recommend them to others.

Invite a CARE speaker to your church

We are keen to support church leaders in encouraging political engagement and social action in their congregations; inspiring them to campaign on important issues and pray for elected representatives.

We are often involved in giving seminars to churches (e.g. human trafficking, getting involved in politics) and in preaching in Sunday services on Bible passages that are applied to this area.

If you would like to invite a member of the CARE team to speak at your church, please email us at: mail@care.org.uk

Finishing Line: a study resource on assisted suicide

Considering recent political developments in the UK, exploring and understanding the issue of assisted suicide is more important now than ever. There are no easy answers, but the course encourages a more open understanding of the subject from a Christian perspective.

We are pleased to introduce Finishing Line - a brand new study resource addressing the issue of assisted suicide, which we hope will be useful for church leaders and groups, Bible colleges and individuals in opening up conversation on this matter and exploring the key issues of assisted suicide, human dignity, medical and legal concerns, palliative care and others in a Biblical context.

Finishing Line has been developed by CARE in partnership with Keswick Ministries and is a unique study course based on John Wyatt's book Matters of Life and Death.
