(from the Methodist Church website)
The Baptist Union of Great Britain, the Church of Scotland, the Methodist Church, the United Reformed Church and Quakers in Britain have said that the proposals to renew the Trident nuclear weapons system are “unwarranted” and “unethical.”
This announcement comes in advance of the Parliamentary debate on Trident is to take place, where the UK Government will seek approval to spend £41 billion on building new submarines to carry nuclear weapons.
The Churches have previously expressed dismay that the UK Government is resisting discussions sponsored by the United Nations on multilateral disarmament. UK Churches have been represented at Non-Proliferation Treaty conferences in New York and have sought for many years to influence Government policy on nuclear weapons. In 2015, 26 faith leaders called on the UK Government to join with others in developing a robust plan of action to lead to a world free of nuclear weapons.
With a combined membership of over one million people in the UK alone, the leaders of the five Churches are encouraging all to pray and write to their MPs.
The Methodist Conference unanimously agreed to ask churches to read out the statement on this web page on Sunday, or as soon as possible thereafter; asked all Methodists to call on their MP to challenge racism and discrimination (you can also use this web page to do so); and to encourage all to wear a safety pin to show solidarity against racismhttp://www.methodist.org.uk/nationallife
25th June, 4.30pm – 6.30pm
Last one until September!
Games, Crafts, Activities, All-age celebration, meal!
