We aim to encourage free discussion and engage in meaningful debate around the themes of faith, politics, public life, and social action
The inspiration for the Faith in Politics Network came from the thought-provoking and enriching experiences of interns on the Faith in Politics Internship Scheme. Alumni of the scheme had long voiced a desire to take this work forward beyond the year of the internship, and into the many and diverse areas in which we work.
We invite alumni of the internship and other young professionals to share in these important conversations about our changing society.
