Join the debate – help shape a nation
The Seven Cities Tour will provide the opportunity for politicians from the SNP, Labour, Conservatives and Lib Dems to answers burning questions from evangelical Christians in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Perth and Stirling.
Last month, the Alliance released its referendum manifesto What Kind of Nation? calling on politicians to broaden the debate from its narrow economic focus and allow the views of ordinary people to be heard on issues of poverty, welfare, investment incentives for the wealthy. The manifesto contained 38 recommendations on the economy, the family, civil society and the environment which Fred Drummond, national director of the Alliance in Scotland, says are issues he expects will be raised during these debates. The Alliance represents more than 750 organisations and two million evangelical Christians in 3,500 churches across 79 denominations in Scotland and the UK.
All events start at 7.30pm and are free to attend.
