Launch of Report into Persecution of Christians in Iran
On Tuesday 10th March, the Christians in Parliament APPG and the APPG on International Religious Freedom or Belief launched a joint report into the persecution of Christians in Iran. You can download a PDF copy of the report here.
We have launched a new feature giving MPs and Peers the opportunity to share something of what being a Christian means to them and how it impacts on their work on Parliament. Recent contributors include Rt Hon Stephen Timms MP, Andrea Leadsom MP and Baroness Cox. You can watch them here.
