At the time of the Scottish Referendum churches were encouraged to hold events to encourage “respectful dialogue”. A time of prayer has been organised leading up to the General Election led by different clerics and churches with a focus on different topics. They will be held on the 5 Thursday's before and including the election day itself. They will all begin at 12 noon and last for about 15 minutes and be led by the cleric of the host church.
