Legal Advice on Street Preaching
There are many sensible laws which protect freedom to preach and distribute free Christian literature in public places.
In some instances, public officials have sought to restrict this liberty by misapplying the law. It is therefore important that Christians who engage in evangelism in public places have some knowledge of the law.
The Christian Institute has published information about these laws on its website. This includes legal advice from a lawyer given to the Open Air Mission. We have reproduced this advice with the permission of OAM and its lawyer.
