General Election 2015: Hustings

Apr 22, 2015 | News

Hustings at St Catherine's Church Hatcham 26 April 6-8.30pm

This Hustings at St Catherine’s Church – on Sunday 26th April, 6 to 8.30pm – is a free non-ticketed event open to all.

With the General Election fast approaching, 2015 is a year of decision. Our society is facing some fundamental challenges – rising levels of poverty, inequality and austerity, a housing crisis, challenges facing children and young people and the prospect of climate crisis.

This isn’t new, but whoever forms the next government has a tough job and key decisions ahead. These will ultimately shape the type of society that we become.

A coalition of churches have developed a positive ‘2020 Vision‘ of the kind of ‘Good Society’ they want to help create over the five years of the next parliament, with impacts locally, nationally and globally.

The 2020 vision addresses everything from making ethical choices in the food we buy, the causes we choose to support and the active participation we make to help effect positive change in our society.

Please come to the hustings on Sunday 26th April.
