The Parliamentary representative of a group of churches in the UK has made me aware of an important consultation on religion and belief.
In an increasingly secularised society where, when religion is addressed at all, other faith group issues appear to be given precedence over those who are Christians, it is vital that we make our voices heard having been given the opportunity to do so.
Government consultation on religion and belief launched
On 14th August 2014 the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) launched a call for evidence on freedom of religion and brief in England, Scotland and Wales.
The EHRC has asked individuals and organisations to let them know how their religion or belief – or that of other people – has an impact in the workplace and on the services and facilities they use in everyday life. This call for evidence could have a marked impact on the future of equality legislation as it relates to religion and belief.
It is therefore very important that Christians make the most of this opportunity to relate their experiences.

The call for evidence closes on 14th October 2014.
