Nations, Unions and Exits: A Christian View

Tuesday, 27 March 2018 - 7:00am

On 20 March 2018, Gorwel, the Welsh foundation for innovation in public affairs, Cytûn (Churches Together in Wales), an organisation that brings together the main Christian churches of Wales, and the recently launched project These Islands, co-sponsored a lecture by Prof Nigel Biggar on 'Nations, Unions and Exits' at Siambr Hywel, the former debating chamber of the National Assembly for Wales.  The lecture reflected on the role of Christianity in British and European identities, national sovereignty, national and trans-national loyalties, the rights and wrongs of exiting a political union, the benefits of the United Kingdom, and the cons and pros of Brexit, including its effect on the Christian culture of the UK and the EU.  The event was introduced by Rt Revd June Osborne, Bishop of Llandaff, and attended by David Melding AM CBE, Sam Taylor (These Islands), and Revd Gethin Rhys (Cytûn).
