Courage at the Carnival

For a quarter of a century street preachers have boldly proclaimed the Gospel at the Notting Hill Carnival in London, and this year was no exception. On 27 and 28 August, 22 Christians took part in this annual outreach, bravely wearing big Bible messages. City preacher Roland Parsons, who had travelled down from Gloucester, said: “Around 8,000 tracts were given out” and “46 members of the public made a sincere request to receive a King James Bible free.” Roland stuck to his task despite being heavily bandaged after sustaining a two-inch gash on his forehead the day before he was due to preach.

National Trust faces backlash

CitizenGo have organised a petition against the recent politicisation of the National Trust, in advance of the Trust’s AGM on 21 October.

Earlier this year the Trust removed the word ‘Easter’ from chocolate egg hunt, tried to make its volunteers wear LGBT Pride badges (relegating those who refused to jobs out of public view), and introduced intrusive questioning into the sex lives of their volunteers.

Christian Voice director Stephen Green is planning to attend the AGM with a petition from his readers; it is expected that traditionalists attending will also protest about the changes.

The petition can be signed at:

Anti-LGBT movement launches in UK

International movement Mass Resistance, founded in America, has opened a branch in the UK – claimed to be the second biggest after the US.

According to their website, Mass Resistance is a “pro-family activist organisation that educates people to help them confront the attacks on the traditional family, children, religion, and society.” The UK launch on 7 July in central London was hosted by David Skinner from Bournemouth, who introduced US founder Brian Camenker. There are other Mass Resistance organisations in Australia, Nigeria and Finland.
