As readers will have seen in previous newsletters, SPC is very conscious that an election is approaching.Though a small group, we are planning public forums on the interaction between religion and social policies; the role of the churches in contributing to public policy debates; and treatment of refugees and asylum seekers. Through our website we have also been pursuing developments in disarmament negotiations and nuclear weapons, as well as environmental and indigenous issues.

The new online forum for SPC
Join the conversation about social policies
Our new online forum has been launched and you are encouraged to make known your views on important social justice matters. This is a most welcome development for SPC and will enable us to connect more closely with members and their networks, and to foster debate on key social justice issues. This is a core mission objective for us, and we are keen to see the online forum become a lively vehicle for the sharing and shaping of opinions.
