There will be a General Election on December 12th. As Christians we are called to play our part as members of society. For some, this means standing for election, but all of us have an opportunity to engage positively and vote. We are therefore organising an Assembly with our partners in Citizens MK. This will be an opportunity for us to talk about the issues that our members are most concerned about, to listen to what the candidates have to say, and to ask questions.
It’s really important that we get as many people there as possible, so that we can show how much we care. The issues that our members will raise will be:
- Mental Health – the top priority identified by MK Deanery
- Climate Change – a Diocesan priority and a big concern for local schools
- Refugees – which has been a big priority for us as churches since 2015
- Hate Crime – which is a big issue in our diverse city
- Fair Work – which is about the way people are treated by employers

This is an important opportunity to speak to people who may have the power to make a difference. We want to have a positive relationship with the MPs in Milton Keynes – whatever party they may belong to. This will be a way to build that relationship so that we can work together with them for a better MK!
