Vote, pray and think Christianly about the election

17 June 2024

As Christians who care about how law and policy shape society, we should be active, alert and assured that God is on the throne.

Which issues should matter to us Christians, and how might some affect our freedom to share the good news of the Gospel?

In this crucial time in the life of our nation, be informed about how to vote, campaign, pray and have conversations about the election through a biblical lens.

Week 1: Our Christian Foundations

Troubles with the economy, healthcare, immigration and the environment populate our headlines, but are symptomatic of a deeper root cause. Our chief executive Andrea Williams explains how society’s problems today stem from our wholesale rejection of Jesus Christ and his pattern for our society.

Instead, Christian foundations, the value of life, the goodness of family and the importance of freedom are pivotal to how we should vote and pray.



On our Election Watch edition of Round the Table, Andrea Williams, Ade Omooba MBE and Ben John discussed the need for our Christian foundations to be restored in society.

Week 2: Life

Protecting life from womb to tomb is fundamental to good law.

Week 3: Family

Week 4: Freedom

Society has chosen to reject God’s way and follow its own way, having exchanged his truth for a lie. And we are more enslaved than ever before, because only the truth of Jesus Christ can set us free.

Pray with us

On the evening before the general election, hundreds gathered in two locations – Westminster in London and Holyrood in Edinburgh to pray for our nation and the new parliament.

We have compiled a general election prayer guide according to these four pillars for a flourishing society, which you can download, print and pray through with your church or small group.

If you found this resource helpful, do share it around and stay tuned on YouTube, X and Facebook for more updates on the election.
