Friday 6 July
The governing bodies of three partners in the Cambridge Theological Federation – Westminster College, the Henry Martyn Centre and the Woolf Institute – have reached an understanding about working to create a common future and are moving – subject to formal legal contracts – towards sharing the Westminster site.
Three major British Churches have voiced their disappointment that the Rio+20 Earth Summit has not made progress on the environmental challenges that face the global community.
The Methodist Church, United Reformed Church and Baptist Union of Great Britain say that world leaders have largely repeated previous climate pledges, rather than pressing forward. They stress that the pledges in the summit document “The Future We Want” are an inadequate response to the risks posed by climate change.
