Archbishops & The Election

Following last week's letter about the General Election from Helen Kirk, our own minister, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued their own pastoral letter on the subject. Both letters underline the importance of Christians using their vote and taking part in the democratic process.
The Archbishops three-page letter also expresses concerns over poverty, housing, the NHS and education..
It calls for "cohesion, courage and stability" to help close the divisions caused by the political turbulence of recent years. Education must be "for all" and the National Health Service must be allowed to flourish, they say. They also calls on politicians to give refugees and migrants a "generous and hospitable" welcome but should not be "deaf to the legitimate concerns" about the impact of immigration on communities.
