New Christians on the Left Director, Louise Davies

2017 held more than a few surprises and upsets politically.

We were sad to wave goodbye to Andy Flannagan as our Director at the Labour Party Conference, but it is with a sense of excitement for a new season that we welcome Louise Davies, who starts this week as our new Director. Andy is not leaving us altogether, as he of course remains a committed member and we are sure we will continue to benefit from his input and wisdom!

Louise has been a part of our political mentoring programme for 2017 so has become well known to some of our members over this time. Here's some more from Louise on why she is excited about the next season for Christians on the Left:

For a number of years I felt the call of God to enter into politics. Having been part of the Senior Leadership Team at Hope City Church Sheffield, in 2013 I was released to pursue this call. However, I am still active in my church and I am part of the church’s preaching team, travelling extensively across its 12 locations.

Since leaving the Senior Leadership Team of Hope City, I have developed a large network of political contacts, stood as a candidate, worked for a Shadow Minister, and I am currently the Chair of my Sheffield Heeley CLP. I have given myself fully to this challenge and shall continue to work with my local CLP as I embark on this new role.

I have always been proud to be a member of Christians on the Left. Andy and the Exec have done an incredible work of building the profile of the organisation and it is a privilege to take this work to forwards. I trust that together we can continue to empower Christians not only to deepen their relationship with God but also to enter the political arena.

Our Chair Jonathan Reynolds MP said "I'm delighted that Louise is joining us to continue the fantastic work Andy has done for CotL over the last 9 years. She has a huge amount of experience in business, politics, and faith communities and I am very excited about what the future holds for Christians on the Left."

We're not letting Louise stand still for long, with her first meetings with the executive and trip to Parliament already in place this week! You'll be hearing directly from her very soon, once we let her sit still long enough to get her feet under a desk...
