On Friday we launched ACL's guide for the 2015 Queensland state election.

The election guide provides you with some of the highlights from the Government and Opposition’s responses to questions on a number of issues that are of concern to Christians.

You can download the free election guide at our election page at www.qldvotes.org.au.

 

Next weeks' election result will shape the character and values of the state for years to come.

Wherever you are, please be praying for Queenslanders as they decide who will lead the state for the next three years.

God bless
