Description:
The Mayflower Declaration is a statement of political philosophy designed to be compatible with mainstream Christian beliefs and values. It was adopted by the Council of the Christian Peoples Alliance in September 2001. It is relatively succinct, running to thirteen A5 pages.

After a brief recapitulation of Christian beliefs and values, and their relevance to British politics, the Mayflower Declaration describes "six guiding principles which highlight some basic themes of Christian Democracy". These are Justice, Respect for Life, Reconciliation, Active Compassion, Wise Stewardship, and Empowerment.

The document also contains a list of goals for the Christian Peoples Alliance in the policy areas of Education, Health, Welfare, Employment, Housing, International Policy, Economics, Defence, Business, the Environment, Crime, Transport, Regeneration, Discrimination, Culture and Sport, and Agriculture.

Finally, it requires that each policy area is "to be considered in relation to both other policy areas and the following areas of focus, to ensure that all policies are considered for their impact in a range of contexts". These "following areas of focus" are: the person, the family, the community, the region, the nation, and the globe.
