Who we are

Affinity is a fellowship of Churches, evangelical Agencies and Christians.

Through our fellowship together we seek to express the unity all God's people enjoy because they belong to Jesus Christ.


Churches in all parts of the United Kingdom and Ireland belong to Affinity together with evangelical agencies and individual Christians.

Through our partnership with one another we are committed to proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


Affinity provides resources to help our partner churches and Christians.

These resources are also made available to churches and Christians around the world who can benefit from them.

Latest News

The latest edition of our Theological Journal Foundation is out

Foundations number 70 is published today - 140 pages of theological writing, free to read online or download:

Foundations issue 70

In this issue we have five articles spanning the areas of systematic theology, cultural apologetics and church history.

On the four-hundredth anniversary of John Owen’s birth Benedict Bird examines Owen’s understanding of the covenant of redemption.

There is the first of a two-part piece by Ted Turnau addressing the subject of Christian cultural engagement in a post-Christian context, using the medium of a series of dialogues with imaginary interlocutors to make his case. The dialogues challenge readers to consider how they engage with the secular post-Christian culture in which we live.

Thirdly, Andrew Latimer seeks to show how David Van Drunen’s reading of the covenant with Adam impacts his understanding of cultural engagement in the Christian life. He argues that Van Drunen has failed to see how believers share in Christ’s Adamic work as the cultural mandate is fulfilled in the new creation.

The final two articles address questions of evangelical identity. On the two-hundredth anniversary of J. C. Ryle’s birth, Ben Rogers examines Ryle’s discovery and defence of Evangelical principles. Sam Crossley’s article looks at how discussions of evangelical identity evolved over the latter half of the twentieth century. He suggests that, as definitions become harder to pin down, the label “evangelical” may become obsolete.

We also feature reviews of Tim Keller’s book on preaching and John Risbridger’s volume on worship in the Bible Speaks Today series.

The new Social Issues Bulletin is published today

The Bulletin is published three times a year by Affinity’s Social Issues Team to keep evangelical churches and individual Christians informed of the implications of legislation and public policy on social issues in the UK.

The July 2016 issue contains a main article on the subject of transgenderism, alongside a review of the recent movie 'The Danish Girl' which focuses on one person's experience of transgenderism in 1920s Denmark.

Two articles taking different sides in the lead-up to the UK referendum (previously published on our website before the vote took place) come next.

We also have a piece on Freedom of Expression, which is under fire in the UK today.

Then there is a review of a book on the church and culture, plus all the usual updates on life issues and current legal cases of interest.

The whole issue may be downloaded, or individual articles:

The day after "Independence Day"

The apostle Peter says “Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honour the emperor.” 1 Peter 2:17.

Do not wring your hands in despair or rub them together in glee but lift them up in prayer.

Practise what you preach and believe that God is in control and trust him for the outcome. He may be judging us as a nation, he may be about to bless us, or both, but always his will always prevails. No-one has won or lost but the Lord of history, who always wins. Do not assume that you have the wisdom to determine if it was the ‘right’ answer or the ‘wrong’ one.

Love your brothers and sisters in Christ and love your neighbours. Your love is being tested. You may have Christian friends, family members, neighbours or workmates who voted differently to you. Be careful not to attribute blame, wrong motives, inferior intellect or failed morality to them. Work for unity within the church and in our divided country. Re-assure those who feel disturbed or anxious.

Preach the gospel. I think the events of the last few weeks have demonstrated a profound spiritual hunger. Tell people about King Jesus. Union with him is all that matters.

Yours in the secure love of Christ,
Graham Nicholls

The EU Referendum - two views

With just days to go before the UK decides on its future relationship with the European Union, the Affinity Social Issues Team has commissioned two papers setting out contrasting positions on the matter. We hope these may prove helpful for Christians as we seek to cast our vote in a wise and godly manner on June 23.

These papers will also appear as part of the June edition of the Social Issues Bulletin, but as this will likely be delayed until just before the referendum, we decided to make them available now to give more time for their contents to be considered.

Guy Brandon of the Jubilee Centre in Cambridge writes in favour of staying in, while Peter Mcilvenna, a UKIP activist, argues for leaving.

The EU Referendum - Remain
