Christian groups within the parties
If you are wondering what your first step could be to engage in politics, why not consider joining a Christian group within your preferred party? These groups act as a Christian voice within their respective parties and support Christians who are seeking to make a difference in politics through prayer, fellowship and moral support.
The following three groups are constituent members of Christians in Politics, and would value your support – click on the logos to visit their homepages:
The Liberal Democrat Christian Forum has existed for more than 25 years as a Christian witness within the Liberal Democrat Party. It aims to support and encourage Christians within the party, to act as a bridge between the party and the Christian community and to encourage Christians to be more politically engaged.
Christians on the Left, formerly the Christians Socialist Movement, is a society affiliated to the Labour Party. It has a long history of involvement in British politics dating back to 1960. The organisation exists to be a prophetic voice to left-sided politics and the Church, combining political activity with theological reflectivity.
The Conservative Christian Fellowship is a membership organisation of Christians who support the Conservatives. Members range from Conservative voters to MPs, Councilors and Peers. The CCF contributes to the life and thinking of the party and seeks to build a strong, relational bridge between the party and the Christian community.
Christians in Politics seeks to work with Christian groups in other parties too, where these groups exist, and welcomes approaches from leaders of such groups. CiPol works with those who can subscribe to our vision and values.
