On Thursday, May 4th and Thursday June 8th, our church will once again become a Polling Station for the County Council elections and the General Election. The Joint Public Issues Team of the Methodist, Baptist, United Reformed and Church of Scotland churches make this comment:
"Christianity has a lot to say about politics. Jesus taught about the issues and everyday choices facing ordinary people and those in power. We cannot ignore the challenges facing society today, and we need to engage fully with democratic processes and decision-making. By participating in elections, Christians can make their feelings known, and can impact positively on the political landscape." On May 4th and especially June 8th, we all have the opportunity to express those feelings through the ballot box.
