Faith In Politics

Home » News » Faith In Politics

Faith in Politics is an exciting new podcast series that features guests discussing topics from current affairs that link in with faith. It has been launched by the Joint Public Issues Team (JPIT), a joint venture of the Baptist, Methodist, United Reformed Churches and the Church of Scotland. The podcast was created by Helen Byrne and Rachel Allison who are working for the church as Parliamentary interns.

Each monthly episode will be presented by Helen and Rachel — both avid podcast listeners — and will feature lively discussions from the world of politics from a faith viewpoint, interviews and a 'musing slot', inspired by Thought for the Day. Topics such as poverty, inequality, peace-making and the environment plan to be covered.

Helen Bryne explains: "Christians have a civic duty to engage with the world around them, because our Lord is a God of justice and whether we like it or not, faith in its many manifestations shape our political landscape."
