General Election 2024: Britain and the Bible

Equipping the Church for the General Election.

How should Christians approach the world of politics – or should I even be voting at all? Bible Society has teamed up with Christians in Politics to create resources to help us think through some of these issues. We don’t take sides, but we do want Christians to be salt and light in God’s world – and elections are a time when we know we can make a difference.

Church leaders: how to explain Christianity and politics to your congregations

Some Christians think Christians shouldn’t be involved in politics at all; some think they should, but aren’t sure how. This downloadable resource lays out the strengths and weaknesses of four different approaches Christians can take to politics. It’s a great resource for church leaders wanting to engage their congregations, and for anyone who’s thinking about how – or even whether – to vote on 4 July.
