  • New co-ordinator


    The Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches (FIEC) has appointed a Church Revitalisation Co-ordinator who will be responsible for spearheading a revitalisation initiative among the churches of the FIEC.

  • Shari’a Bill success

    The Christian Institute

    A Bill seeking to restrain the operation of shari’a councils was passed in January by the House of Lords, with the Peer who introduced it saying there is still a long way to go.

    Baroness Cox received support for the plans from Muslim women’s groups as it seeks to tackle gender discrimination in pseudo courts. However, its First Reading in the House of Commons is yet to be scheduled and the BBC has indicated that the Bill has ‘little chance’ of being discussed or passed by MPs.
