UK: Cheshire RE criticised for “sidelining Christianity”
A decision by the Cheshire East Council in England to teach a secular viewpoint as part of religious education has been criticised by some of the borough’s councillors.
- Pray that the Equality and Human Rights Commission will return to its earlier plans, and that these will lead to greater freedom for Christians to follow their beliefs in the workplace.
- Pray that councils across England will recognise the importance of prioritising Christianity as part of religious education and that it will not be further sidelined by the introduction of secularism to the syllabus.
- Pray for the church in Southbourne, Dorset, that it will overcome the discouragement of the recent vandalism.
