UK A review into Sharia law and marriages in the UK has recommended that couples should be required to register Islamic marriages under UK law, and that Sharia Councils should be regulated by the government. But a UK Home Office spokesperson said: “We will not be taking forward the review’s recommendation to regulate Sharia Councils. Sharia law has no jurisdiction in the UK and we would not facilitate or endorse regulation which could present councils as an alternative to UK laws." Contact: info@christianconcern.com

France In 2017 a group of Christian TV producers and broadcasters created a new federation: Fédération Francophone des Médias Chrétiens (F2MC – French Speaking Federation of Christian Medias). In the French speaking world, recent initiatives have resulted in some new Christian TV Channels and production companies. The French speaking countries include French Canada, North and Western Africa, Madagascar and other islands in the Indian Ocean - a total of about 300 million people. The aim of the new group is to establish working partnerships to develop production and increase variety. Patrick Vauclair has been appointed as the chairman. Patrick is managing director of VX-COM Int. and has produced more than 1000 TV shows and documentaries. Among those who have joined this federation are Impact TV, Dieu TV, CNA (Channel North Africa), CBN Europe, Agape Media (production facilities), Studio + Kleeze (production), Grand Angle production, Girault Studio (animation) and others (about 30 partners to date.

UK Labour Party transgender activists ‘Labour against Transphobia’ have produced a blacklist of female Labour feminists who are opposed to transgender women being placed on Labour’s all woman shortlist for Parliamentary Candidates. Karen Herradine warns the Conservative party: "Thanks to weak leadership the Tories are also pandering to the transgender cult – to the detriment of the rest of us”. A study from the Campaign for Social Justice shows that the vast majority of teenagers still aspire to marriage, despite a growing trend for cohabitation. More than three out of four youngsters plan on getting married and they also believe that marriage is more than simply living with someone else. Contact: info@christianconcern.com

UK An enquiry led by Alex Chalk MP, concluded that Social media companies are not doing enough to combat the threat of cyber-bullying and that the measures being taken by companies like Facebook are ‘inconsistent and inadequate’. Their report concludes: ‘Social media companies cannot continue to ignore the reality that children under the age of 13 are using their sites’, and should make age-appropriate settings. The report also found that 38 percent of young people reported that social media has a negative impact on how they feel about themselves, compared to 23 percent who reported that it has a positive impact. Young people giving evidence to the inquiry described feeling judged and inadequate if they didn’t have enough likes or followers. The inquiry took evidence from over 1,000 children and young people, aged 11-25, global social media companies including Facebook, and a selection of experts and stakeholder organisations including psychologists, and children’s charities.

Mozambique Christians in Northern Mozambique are seeking a deeper knowledge of Christ, but they struggle to discern the truth of the Gospel in the midst of a culture of ethnic and ancestor worship. To meet this need, TWR Canada has distributed Bibles, Audio Bibles and radios in partnership with ShareWord Global and The Bible Society in Mozambique. By combining radio, audio Bible and printed Bibles, listeners can join together to hear the radio programmes, then read or listen to corresponding Scripture, discuss what they have learned and help each other to apply it to their lives.

ASIA

Bangladesh Persistent heavy rains hit Bangladesh in late 2017, raising river levels, which caused extensive landslides and floods. The floods have begun to recede, and patches of land are becoming visible. OM teams have identified 117,800 people who have been affected by the floods. 150 of the families in one district have lost their homes, land, livelihood, animals, and even family members. Of those who have lost their homes, it is estimated that a quarter have moved in with relatives, with as many as 15 people squeezed into one small house. The remainder have been living under tarpaulins by the roadside. Once the floods have fully receded, and the land is dry enough to build on, OM will seek to build 200 homes for the most needy.
