Admin history
  • Christian CND was probably originally founded in the early 1960s as a specialist section of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. In 1981 it was expanded and reorganised on a more permanent basis. It had its own membership, newsletter and administration, and considerable autonomy in forming its own policies. It organised many conferences at local and national level as well as acts of protest, liturgies and services at bases and government sites. Its members were also involved in letter writing, lobbying and educating for peace and disarmament.
