the General Election


Bishop James and Bishop Simon have written to us here in our diocese and encouraged us in these General Election days particularly as churches and individuals, inviting us to: "pray for generousity in debate, wisdom in policy forming, and to show hospitality in offering our buildings as places for hustings so the democratic process can be enabled."


"Our prayer is for the development of a vision in the UK which is rooted in the character of God and will stand it in good heart for the changes that lie ahead. The local church is well placed to help in the necessary process of healing and reconciliation that we face; to encourage true community where the voiceless and the most vulnerable have their role." We're looking forward to full engagement for the Sevenoaks seat, in our regional Hustings being held this weekend, Sunday 8th December 1630 at St Peter's Church, College Road, Hextable BR8 7RH with representation from all six parties and candidates confirmed.
