Conversation Welcome and Article 50
After the triggering of Article 50 on 29 March, there is a natural level of uncertainty about what our country's future might look like.
As a result, we have launched our brand new resource, Conversation welcome which invites Church members to take part in constructive conversations about the sort of society we wish to live in — whether we voted to 'leave' or to 'remain' in the EU referendum.
The resource, suitable for groups of any size, is structured around four questions:
What sort of society do we want to leave for future generations?
How should we treat others?
How should we use our resources? How should we make decisions?
To download the whole pack, which includes prayers, discussion questions, reflections and videos, see
