CFI at Alba party conference

We held a fringe event at the Alba party conference on Saturday 13th May in the Eden Court Theatre, Inverness. This took the form of a talk by CFI Convener Dave Thompson on Religion and Politics  –  a Christian perspective. Dave is a former MSP and an elder in the Church of Scotland.

Dave’s talk

The meeting was chaired and prayers offered by Rev Edward Andrews.

The subject of the talk is one which has caused considerable controversy recently. A lively discussion after the talk showed a variety of views on how people with a religious faith can take part in politics. Among the

audience we were pleased to welcome Alba General Secretary Chris McEleny, who is one of our members.

We also had a stall, which was visited by many conference delegates. Thanks to all who came to speak to us and got copies of our booklet Scotland the Nation  –  a Christian case for independence. And welcome to the new members who joined us!



Our most recent members meeting was held by Zoom on 22nd March.  Our AGM will be held in June, the date will be announced soon.
