Opportunities to make yourself heard and make a difference
You may not think it, but Christians are a minority group in terms of their voice in society. The country may claim to be over 50% Christian, but this depends, of course, on your understanding of what a Christian is.
None-the-less, active Christians are passionate about many areas of life including Christian media and politics and advocacy. Critical good work in these areas is continuing through many Christian rooted charities and organisations. The Christian voice may be heavily subdued by the secular world, but it still very much alive – and active. Most importantly, Christianity continues to make a huge difference – not just with words – but through positive actions, both here in the UK and far beyond.
This page has several purposes. We hope it might help to point you in the right direction to become more informed about what’s going on in Christian media and politics and advocacy.
Perhaps you want to make your voice heard regards the media and media reporting or issues relating to politics and democracy. Or perhaps you want to find out more about the advocacy that Christians are already involved with, but don’t know where to start.
People consume a lot of their information via the often selective and negatively distorted ‘mainstream’ media. We have included a list of places where you can make your voice heard and complain about the general secular media using media regulators.
The links include some christian advocacy websites – all working toward justice, truth, equality alongside politics and media. For the latest Christian news, you can also visit our UK Christian News page for the latest news feeds.
We are aware this is just a starting point and there are many, many other Christian organisations who could be listed on this page. If you have a suggestion for a link we can add, please let us know the details.
