We have created an MCF Survey and are seeking people's opinions on MCF what we do well, what we don't and how we can improve amongst other things. All are welcome to partake in this as it would be great to get a wide variety of opinions so we can track trends to gain a general picture of where MCF is currently.
The survey can be done anonymously and we appreciate your input.More
Centre for Public Christianity Easter 2017 podcast with COL Craig Bickell
"Sacrifice implies that there’s a cost. I think most, if not all, service men and women, and the families they’ve left behind, have experienced the idea of this service costing something - not being able to see their loved ones on a regular basis because they’re deployed, up to the point of sacrificing one’s life." Coming up on Life & Faith, a special Easter interview. Colonel Craig Bickell shares his thoughts on sacrifice and service, morale and resilience, and what Christian faith can offer the profession of arms.

This trek is about remembering and honouring those 300 plus who have gone before us.
