Christian perspectives on the EU referendum

26 February 2016

As has been widely documented in the media, there is to be a referendum on 23rd June 2016 concerning Britain's membership of the European Union (EU).

The Church of England and the Church of Scotland launched www.reimaginingeurope.co.uk in 2015 with the aim of 'resourcing and equipping Christians to think through faithfully the presenting issues ahead of the referendum'.

It is said that this blog 'does not take an editorial line beyond a commitment to communicating Christian reflection and commentary in ways that enhance public understanding on an issue that many find both confusing and divisive. To this end, and as part of the exercise of encouraging "good disagreement" on the EU, [the blog] contains a broad variety of views from across the political and theological continuum.'
