CHRISTIANS START ENQUIRIES Orpington Christian Social Council will not hold a week of mass meetings this year, as last, owing to the unsettled war conditions. Instead they are sending teams of four or five local speakers of all denominations by invitation to various societies in the district to give considered answers on questions submitted beforehand on the Five Standards of the Christian New Order agreed by the leaders of the Catholic, Anglican and Free Churches.
The Council have also formed a Commission of seven to inquire into Community and Family Life and Moral Welfare, including population and birth prevention. Fr. Stiecombe and a member of C.P.E.A. are the two Catholic members of the Commission with representatives of all the churches on the Council.
