Archbishops’ pastoral letter on the General Election
The Archbishops have issued a Pastoral Letter relating to the General Election that encourages Christians to pray for those standing for office, and to continue
to pray for those who are elected.
They also say that “our second obligation as Christians at these times is to set aside apathy and cynicism and to participate, and encourage others to do the same. At a practical level that could mean putting on a hustings event for candidates, volunteering for a candidate, or simply making sure to vote on Thursday 8th June. The Christian virtues of love, trust and hope should guide and judge our actions, as well as the actions and policies of all those who are seeking election to the House of Commons and to lead our country”.
