As of the summer 2019 issue, Sign of the Times is no longer available online though archive copies are still available on the website.

The articles we publish do not necessarily reflect a Modern Church perspective - in keeping  with our commitment to liberal theology we believe that different views should be heard.

Contact the editor if you would like to submit an article.Articles should not normally exceed 800 words.
