Next year’s annual conference has been arranged for Saturday 14 April 2018 and will be held at the Salvation Army’s Regent Hall, in Oxford Street, London.

In the morning Mark Jones will be speaking on the subject “Gospel Freedom and the Workplace” and will look at how the law impacts Christians at work, in particular the ability to speak openly about their faith.

In the afternoon Malcolm Martin  will be speaking on the subject “What is Truth? - and how do we tell it” and will be addressing some of the issues in the current debates about post-truth and fake news.  His talk will provide  a (very) brief history of fake news from the beginning of humanity to the current date; consider the current dissemination of fake news, with particular reference to the use of social media;  look at the identification of fake news and fake news purveyors and difficulties with these approaches; and  make suggestions on the role of the Christian librarian and information specialist.

Mark Jones is head of employment law at MW solicitors and chairman of the Lawyers’ Christian Fellowship.

Malcolm Martin is a Chartered Surveyor and the deputy leader of the Christian People’s Alliance.  He is passionate about social justice and has stood as a parliamentary candidate for the Lewisham Deptford constituency.  He has been an unpaid church leader in inner city  London for many years.
