A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we put on your computer. These cookies allow us to distinguish you from other users of the website which helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site. Some of the cookies we use are “analytical” cookies such as tracking cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they’re using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example by making sure users are finding what they need easily. Targeting cookies help to tailor information that is presented to you for example relevant adverts you might be interested in rather than completely random ones.
If you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are set by any of the UK Christian Web sites, you can also do this through your browser settings. The Help function within your browser should tell you how. We have included some information about this below. Please be aware that restricting cookies may impact on the functionality of UK Christian Web sites and might stop them functioning at all.
Occasionally we may use Vimeo and YouTube to embed videos on our websites and you may be sent cookies from them via our site. Please look at the cookie and privacy policies on these third-party sites if you want more information about this.
Some third-party services may be based outside of the UK and the EU they may not fall under the jurisdiction of UK courts.

We, like many, have found it difficult to fully implement the cookie law as the website changes and is kept up to date with current technologies. We’ve done our best based on our understandings. If you spot anything we can improve, or that needs updating on our site, please contact us. You can find more general information about the EU Cookie Law at the following websites:
