How do you know who to vote for in the upcoming General Election?

The apostle Paul tells his associate Timothy “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Saviour, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.”

We are to pray for our government (local and national): that they may let us get on with the business of living out our faith. This includes prayer that we might be allowed continuing freedom to communicate it outside the church.

But in the UK we have a further privilege, which is to influence the priorities of government. Not just by voting for a particular party or candidate, but by writing to your local MP, lobbying via online petitions, and so on. The churches in Staines are planning to ask some of our local candidates to a hustings at St Peter’s Church in the couple of weeks before the election. Look out for more details. In the meantime, do visit the engaGE15 website for ways of getting involved. Pastor Nick Gray
