Conversion therapy response

At the recent Assembly Executive the URC passed a resolution on so-called 'conversion therapy', which seeks to change an individual's sexuality or gender identity. The resolution notes that this is unethical, potentially harmful, and supports proposals for a ban. There is currently a UK government consultation on this issue - follow this link for more details and to respond.

Here's the URC response

Mersey Mission Fund

URC Mersey Synod has set up a Mission Fund

The Synod has set aside £75,000 a year and your church can apply! You can apply for a large grant of up to £25,000 a project or, using the small grant scheme, you can apply for up to £2,500 as many times as you need. You could even ask for just £100 for a Family Fun Day! Synod wants to say yes! Grants are for mission projects, not building projects. Find out more
