Modern Church encourages open, respectful debate and discussion of matters relating to Christian faith. Originally a Church of England society, it now welcomes all who share its ethos.
For the first time in our 119 year history, we are seeking to appoint a paid, part-time General Secretary.
Modern Church highly commends this excellent report by the Church of Scotland, published last week.
Over the last 20 years church debates on same-sex partnerships have been vitiated by power struggles, threats of splits and unconvincing compromises with the loudest voices.
Instead this Report focuses on the real theological issues at stake, drawing on the work of leading academic theologians like Jean Porter and Robert Song.
At this month's annual meeting of the Modern Church Council, our Acting General Secretary Revd Dr Lorraine Cavanagh gave the keynote address about the profound implications of liberality in countering extremism and fundamentalism in both religion and politics.
In the paper she presented, Reclaiming the Soul of Modern Church, Lorraine argued that as a liberal society, Modern Church embodies intellectual freedom and hospitality, which calls us to
do theology together in such a way as to connect with those who find themselves either outside the bounds of the institutional Church, or marginalized within them.
