By - Election Special
An exercise in Christian Civic Engagement
Next week we have a CHOW St Helier By-Election Special.
We have invited all of the 9 by-election candidates across the two districts to join us at CHOW for an open discussion on a variety of issues that are likely to matter to the faith community
Some of the subjects we hope to discuss (rather ambitiously for a 40 min lunch meeting) are:
Civil religion at state occasions
Equal (Gay) Marriage
Tax subsidy of established church
So far 5 candidates have agreed to join us and we are hoping to hear from the rest over the weekend. We very much look forward to welcoming the candidates with some customary CHOW hospitality in an atmosphere of friendship and welcome, whilst also seeking to engage honestly and sincerely with their ideas and proposed policies.
You may wish to submit questions for the candidates below or send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
