In 2004 members of the Southampton Council of Faiths produced a series of six half hour programmes with Meridian TV looking at the six main different faith communities in the city.

There are two types of Christian in the United Kingdom; the Christian who positively tries to follow in the way of Jesus and the Christian who has a vague idea what it means and whose way of life is subconsciously infused with Christian culture and values.

Practicing, church-going, praying Christians see their religion as involving belief about God showing himself in Jesus, they belong to a community of other Christians, and strive to follow the examples of Jesus Christ. Read more here…
