Hustings are being hosted by churches around the borough as we lead up to the election. Steve Calder, minister of Brandon Baptist in Camberwell, sent his report of the recent hustings gathering held there;
“On a warm spring evening, people from across Peckham and Camberwell came to Brandon Baptist Church for a hustings: to listen to the vision and plans of various candidates to be the MP for the constituency.
Candidates from the Greens, Labour, the Conservatives, UKIP and the National Health Action Party were all present. A retired LibDem councillor represented his party as their candidate had a commitment elsewhere.
The hustings was respectfully but firmly chaired by Tim Watkins-Idle and questions were submitted beforehand and grouped together around the major issues: health, education, housing, the economy etc. Some more specific questions were also thrown in, such as the current law regarding indefinite adult detention for immigration purposes.
At the end of the two-hour event, someone noted how polite this hustings had been in comparison with others they had attended. Judging by the number of people staying around to chat afterwards, it would appear that it also engaged people in talking about the issues surrounding the forthcoming General Election.”
Watch this space and be sure to look our for opportunities to engage your church in prayer for and discussion with those who would aspire to lead in political office, in particular on key issues that will impact our borough.

THE REFERENDUM & SCOTLAND’S FUTURE – A CALL TO PRAYER
18th September 2014 is an historic day for Scotland. After a little more than 300 years since the Acts of Union in 1707 Scotland will vote on whether to become an independent nation or remain part of the United Kingdom.
300 years ago the church gave spiritual leadership, without taking sides. Today, there is the same, if not a greater need for the church in Scotland to give such leadership once again.
While the ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ campaigns focus on the political, economic, social, educational and cultural issues, which are of course essential to the debate, as Christians we also care about Scotland’s moral and spiritual climate. We believe that God is the ultimate authority and we have a biblical responsibility to pray for our nation and its leaders at this crucial time. Prayer is already taking place.
The team who organised ‘The Stand’ – the St Andrews Day of Prayer – are sending out weekly emails with prayer points on the Referendum and Scotland’s future for use by individuals, home groups and church prayer meetings. If you are not already using them, you can receive them by registering your email address at www.thestand.org.uk/news/ Sunday 14th and Wednesday 17th September are key dates just before the vote.
- On the Sunday we invite you to include prayer about the vote and the nation’s future in your regular service and/or hold a special prayer service in the evening, possibly with others.
- On the Wednesday we invite you to participate in a national day of prayer and fasting. Please see attached document for more information Referendum-Prayer-Call.pdf (300 downloads)
