The viral pandemic has provoked an increase in tensions between nations, and a stronger focus on defending national interests. Within the UK, this has been exacerbated by the country’s exit from the European Union. In this webinar, we will explore how Christians might contribute to overcoming current tensions by building bridges across some of the boundaries within Europe.
