    "I've known Andy for longer than either of us will ever admit to and I am delighted that he is our candidate for Shenfield, the place he's called home for 38 years. He is not a career politician - he got involved and agreed to stand because he was (like a lot of Shenfield residents) angry about the threatened closure of Shenfield Library. I hope he will be joining my team on Thursday 2 May."

Meanwhile as liberals who believe in freedom of worship for all, we stand in solidarity with those Christians who are persecuted for their beliefs.

    I suspect that many people outside the church think that Christmas is the most important date in the Christian calendar. It isn't Christmas, but Easter. While at Christmas we celebrate Jesus, the son of God coming to earth, taking on human form and living like we do. At Easter, we remember he died for us and was brought back to life.
