A Prayer for after a General Election

God of justice, love and grace we pray for all who stood as candidates in the General Election.

We pray for all who will now take up their seats as Members of Parliament, for our newly elected Government, and for those parties that will serve on the opposition benches.

May all who serve in Parliament do so with integrity, with care for the most vulnerable, and with concern for the common good. We pray they will be filled with compassion, wisdom and mercy.

May every member of the Government seek to do what is right, for the benefit of all.

In your mercy, hear our prayer.


Joint statement following the General Election from Baptist, Methodist and United Reformed Church leaders

We congratulate Sir Keir Starmer on his appointment as Prime Minister, and all who will now take their seats representing their constituencies as Members of Parliament in Westminster.

The election campaign has been hard-fought, but we know that the real challenges still lie ahead.

The new government inherits a situation where poverty in the UK has been increasing and deepening at an alarming rate. Conflict and persecution in different parts of the world are forcing many to flee their homes to seek safety in other countries including the UK. The existential threat of climate change is causing enormous suffering to both humankind and the wider natural world. There is an urgent need for politicians to restore trust and rebuild integrity in public life. There are also huge pressures on the NHS, on social care, on the criminal justice system, education and other public services, as well as on the public finances.

It is clear that there is an appetite for change in the country, but also a need to restore faith in the ability of politics to meet these challenges
