Following the UK general election, which resulted in a landslide victory for the Labour party, Christian leaders and organizations have been responding to the outcome.

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby congratulated incoming Prime Minister Sir Keir Starmer and thanked outgoing Prime Minister Rishi Sunak for his service.

Welby also expressed gratitude for the peaceful transition of power and prayed for the new government to have humility, wisdom, and integrity.

Evangelical Alliance CEO Gavin Calver acknowledged the significant change and burden of responsibility that comes with the election result, and prayed for Sir Keir Starmer and his government, citing Psalm 72.

The Bishop of London, Sarah Mullally, also offered her prayers and best wishes to Sir Keir Starmer ahead of his meeting with the King.

These Christian leaders’ reactions reflect a range of perspectives on the election outcome.
