Cultural Issues: Resources

The following resources are those which we have found helpful in preparing the Cultural Issues sermon series preached at Church on the Green in Spring 2020.

It is not exhaustive, but we hope it will be helpful as a starting point in thinking about what it looks like to live a life of faithful discipleship for Christ in the UK at this time. We’ll update this list as we become aware of more helpful resources.

The resources are ordered by the topic to which they refer. Where the resources refer to more than one of the topics, they are repeated in each section.
