Churches Host Hustings

As part of Churches Together in Hoddesdon, Broxbourne and Wormley, Ben Quant at Wormley Free Church is delighted to be helping host the Broxbourne Hustings at Wormley Community Centre.

The event will be on Sunday 30 June from 7:30 to 9pm (doors open 7pm). It is a great opportunity for members of the community to come and meet those standing to be MP for Broxbourne in the General Election. 

All of the candidates have been invited to attend, and there is also an opportunity to submit questions in advance by email. 

Speaking about the event, Ben said, 'Some people say that faith and politics shouldn’t mix. We disagree. As Christians we believe we are called to love our neighbours, care for the vulnerable, and play our part in developing a fair and compassionate society, just as Jesus did. Ultimately, isn’t this what politics is supposed to be all about?

'As a church we don’t support a particular candidate or party, nor encourage our members to vote in a particular way. Instead we encourage our members to be active in their communities and to positively engage with their MPs through encouraging them, asking questions, raising concerns and holding them to account. We regularly pray for all in authority.'

Elections are in many people's thoughts at the moment and Simon Allaby's Short Thought this week looks at 'Those Election Promises' considering often sceptical thinking about whether manifesto promises will be kept, and comparing this to the promises of Jesus.
