Change is made by those who show up

The long anticipated 2024 UK General Election is upon us, where the people hoping to represent you in the next UK Parliament will be vying for your vote. What an opportunity this presents us with!

A new Parliament offers a fresh start to build relationships with MPs and show them what you and your church expects of them.

We invite you to follow in Jesus' footsteps: to sit down and break bread with decision makers and urge them to act on poverty

 

The upcoming UK general election offers us a unique opportunity to put our faith into action. Reaching out to our newly elected MP's, building relationships and showing them that we're serious about acting on poverty.

Like Helen did.
