Church General Election Package

We get a lot of requests from church and group leaders asking for some inspiration and help as they struggle with what they should say about issues such as Brexit and politics in general. As tensions heighten in an election period, this is even more the case.

So we thought it might to be helpful to provide a simple “Sunday morning package” to give a few ideas and some quality resources. There is a call to prayer video, which is a useful introit to a time of intercession for the nation, but also includes the challenge to be peace-makers in the context of an evermore divided society. There is a hymn called “We seek your Kingdom” that everyone should be able to sing, as it uses the famous tune of “Abide with me”, calling out to God for integrity and leadership in the public square. There is a suggested talk outline on themes of reconciliation, and a powerful prayer asking for more workers in the harvest-field that is politics.
