From its beginnings to the present day, the first concern of the Institute is that the Church must not accommodate to the world. Only in this way can believers be an influence on the nation which is so vitally needed. We have sought to promote Christian truth particularly as it applies to the nation, the world of work, education and the local community. Christians equipped by the work of the Institute have urged our nation’s leaders to do what is right. We look at how the work of the Institute has developed over the years including, among other things, the work of the Legal Defence Fund.
