PUBLIC SECTOR: Christian group in £2m scheme to aid churches

Christian pressure group the Evangelical Alliance has launched a

campaign to boost the role of churches in society.



The £2m campaign, to run until December 2002, is the group's

biggest ever.



The Alliance aims to increase the number and scope of church projects

nationwide through a campaign to combat what senior communications

officer Lorna Madden calls 'morally deficient values of 21st century

Britain'.



She said: 'These include drug issues, teenage pregnancy and divorce. The

aim is to promote Christian values and, in turn, increase the work of

churches.'



PR for the campaign, called Face Values, is being handled in-house. A

campaigns team has already been set up, headed by co-ordinator Paul

Harris.



The cost of the campaign is expected to be met largely through

donations.
