The Protestant Truth Society ran a stand at the Christian Resources Exhibition from May 17 to 20 at the ExCeL Centre in east London.
The stand had a wide selection of PTS literature, including a number of copies of booklets from the Time Travellers’ Club and Garry Williams’ latest pamphlet ‘Why Protestant Truth Still Matters’. Many people took copies and spoke appreciatively of what was on offer.
The main focus of the stand, however, was the forthcoming referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union. Large numbers of the PTS pamphlet ‘Why Christians should vote to leave the European Union’ and also of the booklet ‘A Christian Case for Leaving the European Union’ were distributed. They were, on the whole, received enthusiastically. A number of people came back to ask for more to give to their friends or churches.
Our presence at the CRE will certainly help to raise awareness of PTS in the wider Christian world, and, God willing, made a useful contribution to the referendum on the EU. This is probably the most important political decision that our country faces since joining the EEC in 1973. It is the prayer of the Council of the PTS that the UK will leave the EU and return to the faith on which Britain’s Protestant Constitution is based.
Duncan Boyd of PTS Council organized the team, and was ably helped by Regan King, the minister of a Baptist church in Islington. Andrew Price and his wife Ruth manned the stand faithfully every day. Edward Malcolm, the PTS Vice-Chairman, also rendered valuable assistance on the Wednesday.
