General Election

Coming soon to a polling station near you…

You might have noticed that there's going to be a general election.

With just six weeks to go, we are working to produce a range of resources to help you in your reflection, discussion and decision making around the election. Ultimately we want all our Church members to feel informed and well equipped as they walk into their local polling station and cast their ballot.

Hot off the press is Holding a Question Time Meeting or Election Hustings’, a resource offering guidance for holding a hustings in your constituency.  

We have also produced This is a time… reflections on the general election’ which provides six reflections on key biblical themes. You may wish to use these for personal reflection, to read out at Church (there are six Sundays until June 8th and six reflections after all), or they could be used in small group discussion.

There are more resources on their way, including an issues briefing and hustings guidance, so please do keep an eye on our #GE2017 webpage:

Until then, here are some wise words from John Wesley
