The ‘Christians and Candidates 2010’ initiative is hosting a special event THIS MONDAY (26th April) at Westminster at which a panel including senior representatives of the bigger political parties will answer questions from Christians like you about issues of concern.
During the evening members of the panel will be asked whether they and the parties that they represent will take the pledge to ‘respect, uphold and protect the right of Christians to hold and express Christian beliefs and act according to Christian conscience’ as described on the Westminster 2010 declaration website.
It would be a wonderful testimony to the fact that Christians care deeply about our society and its future, if the auditorium (which seats 1000 people) were packed out – even at this short notice.
So, please support this important event, if you possibly can – and encourage other Christians to do the same.
THIS MONDAY – 26th April – 7pm (doors open 6.15pm)
Emmanuel Centre, 9 – 23 Marsham Street, Westminster, London SW1P 3DW
Advance registration is recommended but not required.
Questions need to be submitted in advance.
For more information, to register, to submit a question and to download a poster to display at church this Sunday, please visit: www.christiansandcandidates.org
