The official launch of the Not Ashamed campaign has attracted huge media interest. We hope that this will be the beginning of a new, robust national debate about the place of the Christian Faith in modern Britain, in which Christians will be able to speak clearly of the ongoing validity and value of the Christian foundation of our nation.
Supporters of Not Ashamed have conducted at least 25 national or local radio interviews in connection with the launch, whilst coverage has appeared in national newspapers today. You can see examples on the media tab of the home page.
In spite of the cold weather, Lord Carey, former Archbishop of Canterbury, officially launched his leaflet 'I'm Not Ashamed' outside the House of Lords at lunchtime today. Later in the afternoon, a delegation delivered information about the campaign to 10 Downing Street and Buckingham Palace whilst other supporters gathered at Parliament. Further photos will appear here soon.
Thousands of Christians across the country have been wearing the Not Ashamed logo today - you can order items here. Meanwhile, a number of local events have taken place today whilst others are planning to contact their MP, write to their local newspaper or advertise the thrust of Not Ashamed in other ways, in the days to come. You can read one example here.
We look forward to receiving photos and further details.
It's still not too late to promote the campaign at church (see here, order copies of Lord Carey's leaflet for local distribution (see here) or contact local community leaders and MPs (contact us here for materials).
We'd be pleased to hear of other ideas that you have to help highlight the value of the Christian foundation of our society.
