The Easter message issued by Keir Starmer, the Leader of the Opposition, on 3 April 2021.
Happy Easter to Christians celebrating in the UK and around the world.
I am in awe of everything that you’ve done in the pandemic over the course of the last year.
The Christian community has always been there for the marginalised and for those that need support and help, but over the last year that has shone through so strong and so visible for everybody to see.
Whether that’s work in Churches with foodbanks, I’ve seen so many in our Churches supplying food to those that need it in our communities. Whether it’s vaccine centres in our Church or just the pure volunteering and looking out for people within our communities.
Thank you for everything you’ve done during this pandemic. Thank you for all that support and community spirit.
I know Easter is a special time for Christians. It’s a time for hope and renewal. And, as we come out of this pandemic, I think those values will be so important to us as a nation.
As we see the light at the end of the tunnel, Easter is a good time for us to reflect on the values and the things that really matter in our lives. So Happy Easter.
