Southwark Diocese have highlighted a few resources that may be of use for Christians in the Deanery when thinking about the policies and issues under discussion prior to the forthcoming General Election.  They're listed under the Resources section of the Southwark website, but for ease they are reproduced below:

'Who is my neighbour?' - The House of Bishop's Pastoral letter
This is a recent 56 page document, written by the Bishops of the Church of England, which provides general principles for thinking about politics.  It won't tell you who to vote for, but it does give some helpful thoughts on how to engage with the UK's political system "thoughtfully and prayerfully".

'Who is my neighbour? - A study guide
A 16 page document for considering the Bishop's pastoral letter "Who is my neighbour?" in your church and community.

'Who is my neighbour?' - A summary by Terry Drummond, former Bishop's Adviser on Urban and Public Policy
A 7 page summary of the Bishop's letter.  This is the link to browse if you've not got enough time to read the full letter
