Keep The Faith publisher, Shirley McGreal, was one of the many guests at a special reception for Christians across the denominational spectrum, held at
10 Downing Street during Easter.
The Reception was hosted by British Prime Minister, David Cameron, who shared with those present, which included Bishop John Francis of Ruach Ministries, and Bishop Joe Aldred of Churches Together in England, the importance of faith and faith institutions in the UK.
He told the gathered crowd: “This Government does care about faith; it does care about the institutions of faith, and it does want to stand up and oppose the aggressive secularisation that can sometimes happen in our society.”
“As I’ve said, it’s a good week to celebrate not just the importance of faith in our country, but also the importance of faith institutions in our country in this week when we’ve seen a new Pope and we will see a new Archbishop, because these institutions do matter.”
Shirley McGreal said, “It was an honour to attend this Reception, representing Keep The Faith magazine, the UK’s leading magazine about Black faith community, and to see the current Government acknowledge the contribution the Christian community makes in wider society.”
