The largest body of evangelicals in the United Kingdom says Christians of all denominations should “wholeheartedly welcome” this week’s visit by Pope Benedict XVI.

During the first papal visit to Britain in 28 years, the pope is expected to deliver remarks on what has been described as a growing “secular agenda.”

The pope is expected to arrive in Britain on Thursday for the start of a four-day visit that will include open air masses in Glasgow, London and Birmingham, and meetings with church and government leaders.
