BME leaders encourage christians to vote

As the General Election approaches, key BME church leaders have been featured in a video to remind churchgoers of the importance of voting, and how vital it is that people from all backgrounds get their voice heard.

Ministers featured in the video are all members of the One People Commission, and include: Bishop Wilton Powell, OBE, of the Church of God of Prophecy; Pastor Modupe Afolabi of the Redeemed Christian Church of God; Pastor Siew-Huat Ong of the Chinese Church in London, and Bishop Eric Brown, former National Overseer of the New Testament of Church of God and currently the Pentecostal president of Churches Together in England.

Rev Yemi Adedeji, director of the One People Commission, said: “As key church leaders in this nation, we have a great responsibility to come together to focus on the common and most pressing needs of churches from across denominations and ethnicities. We have been brought together for such a time as this – to get politicians to take notice of the Church; to rally the Church itself to be excellent in all God has called us to do, and to equip church leaders to engage the next generation – moving them from being the missing generation to the leaders of tomorrow.”
