A Christian presence in every community

Human Rights

In October 2014 the Mission and Public Affairs Council responded to a Call for Evidence by the Equality and Human Rights Commission on the effectiveness of legislation designed to protect people who hold a religion or belief or do not hold a religion or belief.  You can read our submission here.

In November 2011 the Church of England's Mission and Public Affairs Council responded to the Commission on a Bill of Rights's discussion paper Do we need a UK Bill of Rights? The text of the response is available here.

Earlier in 2011, Mission and Public Affairs responded to the Equality and Human Rights Commission's consultation on Legal Intervention on Religion or Belief Rights. In the response we argue that the preservation of religious freedom - which includes the freedom to manifest religious affiliation and live according to those convictions - is fundamental to a free society.
