Pax Christi wrote to Church House Conference Centre in 2012 and 2014, with only one inadequate response. This year we have written to them again, and to Justin Welby, expressing our concern that the Church of England will be receiving money from the likes of BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin etc… and that the association with them gives tacit support for what they do.
