Our Council is a group of men and women from across the evangelical spectrum, including church leaders and heads of organisations, who join us on our journey towards spiritual and social transformation. Council members meet twice a year to hear about, discuss and feed back on the work of the Alliance; as well as explore the issues affecting the Christian world.
