Broxbourne Hustings

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 Churches Together 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.

We are delighted to be hosting the Broxbourne Hustings at Wormley Community Centre. This will be on Sunday June 30th at 7:30-9pm (doors open 7pm). This is a great opportunity for you 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 you have the opportunity to submit questions to be put before them via the email address by the end of the 26th June.

This is your chance to get involved and have your say. Why not send in your questions today and come along in the night to see how they respond!

Broxbourne Muslim Community are supporting the event, for which we are extremely appreciative. Local secondary schools have also been invited to be involved.
