The tribal nature of politics can be really tough – one can feel like an individual, alone and pitted against others in a slippery climb to the top.

For this reason, it is very important to have others with you who can accompany and support you. A sense of belonging is really important – a sense that you are not going through things alone.

A good way of becoming engaged can be to join a local Christians in Politics group, or a local group led by one of the Christian groups in the political parties.

See here for more information - http://www.christiansinpolitics.org.uk/get-involved/start-a-local-cipol-group/

These groups pray together, read scripture, and work to address local issues which are of concern.

ACT by joining one of these groups today.
