President of the Union of Welsh Independents (UWI), Rev Jill-Hailey Harries, has emphasised the importance of spiritual solidarity post-Brexit, as it is key to allaying fears and suspicion during this uncertain period. “As Brexit severs the UK’s political and economic relationship with the EU, it’s crucial that the relationship with churches in Europe is maintained and strengthened. The churches have a duty to challenge intolerance and insularity, while striving to heal deep social and political divisions,” she wrote in a year-end message. She also reminded them that “faith transcends boundaries”, and that “there are no custom posts or tariffs in God’s kingdom.”
