Christian Citizenship Department
Chairman: Mrs Elenid Jones
Secretary: Revd Jeffrey Williams
The Department was established as part of the new constitution of the Union (1990). Its main purpose is to examine the role of the Christian church in relation to a number of social concerns: from Free Trade to the consequences of urban development, from HIV/AIDS sufferers to stewardship of creation.
The Department is also, in partnership with Christian Aid, responsible for leading the Union’s appeals. Congregational churches have acted on behalf of Sudan (1998), the peoples of the Occupied Territories (2004) and South Africa (2008-9).
