- Guidance and support on the issue of pornography
The Methodist Council report of 1-3 April 2017 MC17-34 Pornography Working Group, responds to a call from 3Generate 2014 which challenged the Methodist Church in Britain to help people of all ages, not just young people or youth workers, to discuss the realities and challenges of pornography. It highlights the complexity of defining pornography and explores some of the challenges raised by a rapidly changing agenda, in part driven by the development of digital technology.
The Council directed the Connexional Team both to ensure that this report remains available as a resource, and to make widely available the list of resources that were included as Appendix 5 of the report (follow the hyperlink above to read the report and appendices).
