The Australian Christian Lobby today welcomed addresses by NSW Premier Mike Baird and Opposition Leader Luke Foley to the state’s Christian community in the lead up to this month’s state election.
The leaders addressed 400 Christian voters and senior church and charity leaders at ACL’s Make it Count election forum held at the Village Church Annandale.
ACL Managing Director Lyle Shelton said the evening was an important opportunity for people to better understand the character and values each leader would bring to government.
“We’re grateful for both leaders’ willingness to engage with the state’s Christian constituency and to be open about how their faith informs their approach to public policy,” Mr Shelton said.
“It was great to see both leaders state that there is an important place for faith in public life and both recognize the role Christianity has had in shaping our society.”
