Supporting your vote: three charities helping Christians navigate the general election (and one you can join in prayer)

As the general election on 4 July quickly approaches, many charities are working to ensure voters are informed and engaged.

Here are three charities that are supporting Christians in particular to navigate the general election with great resources, and one that is specifically asking people to join them in prayer. They are all playing a crucial role in helping people think critically, faithfully and prayerfully about their voting choices, ensuring they are well-prepared to make their voting decision.

As you engage with their campaigns please consider supporting their ministries which will continue to support Christians long after the general election.

 

1. London Institute for Contemporary Christianity (LICC)

LICC are dedicated to integrating Christian faith with daily life, including the political sphere. Their current election-focus centres around a general election podcast with four episodes featuring Christian politicians from four major UK parties discussing how the Christian story connects to their own work. The list includes Tim Farron (Lib Dems), John Mason (SNP), Cat Smith (Labour) and John Glen (Conservatives) and gives a well rounded and balanced perspective on each of the parties' unique character and policies.

You can support LICC as they help empower Christians across the UK to live out their faith in every part of their lives. Through innovative, biblical courses, books, events, talks, and digital content, LICC sparks imagination for the difference Christians can make on their everyday frontline – and equips them to join God’s work right where they are.

2. Evangelical Alliance (EA)

Ahead of the election on 4 July the EA are committed to help you to live out your Christian faith and be a good steward of your vote. They have a range of resources available for you to think faithfully about politics and how to organise election hustings

A gift to the EA will enable them to continue their work in seeing a greater depth of faith for UK evangelicals, a more diverse and unified church, increased influence within the corridors of power and the re-evangelisation of the UK.

3. JustMoney Movement

The vision at JustMoney Movement is for money to shape a fairer, greener world. Their General Election Briefing introduces the economic questions around the election through the lenses of money, fairness and climate. Their hope is that it can help you to access and understand difficult issues, think biblically about policies, and establish what priorities may guide how you decide to vote.

A donation to JustMoney Movement will help them continue to produce timely campaigning, education and advocacy work to help make their vision a reality.

Pray your part in the general election

The General Election will be a moment for the nation to ask important questions about the future. Pray Your Part is an invitation from the bishops of the Church of England to encourage prayer and participation in the life of our nation and communities, both as voters and as citizens.

This 21-day journey of prayer and reflection (from Friday, 14 June until Election Day on 4 July) is designed for use in the run-up to the UK General Election. Each day explores a different theme, with a short Bible reading, reflection and prayer for a different aspect of our common life.
