Who is behind the website?
Christianity.org.uk is the website of the Christian Enquiry Agency Ltd, a registered charity. Originally set up by Churches Together in England, the charity is accountable to the CTE’s Group for Evangelisation.
What is it seeking to do?
The purpose is to inform people about Jesus Christ and Christianity. We hope that men and women will take steps of faith and become ever-closer followers of Jesus Christ as a result of what they discover. It is our prayer that having an active faith will improve their lives.
The Christian Enquiry Agency responds to enquirers by giving them what they ask for, and only what they ask for. Typically, people might ask to be sent part of the Bible that tells the story of Jesus (a Gospel). They might request our hundreds of supporters to pray about something, ask a question about Christianity, request a conversation, or seek a local church or group where they can explore issues of faith.
Who pays for it?
The work of the Christian Enquiry Agency is entirely dependent on donations and grants. These come from churches, trusts and individuals. No one who contacts CEA to ask a question about Christianity is ever asked for money.
What kind of Christianity?
The website and personal responses reflect a conventional, moderate Christian faith. They do not represent any one denomination, but all of them. If Christians take different views on a subject, all viewpoints are explained in an unbiased way.
