Green Party leader Natalie Bennett has chosen St Bartholomew the Great in Smithfield as her favourite church.
This is encouraging and must be a genuine preference because the three main leaders played safe and chose churches in their constituency.
St Bartholomew’s is outside the Holborn & St Pancras seat where Natalie Bennett is candidate.
“My favourite church is St Bartholomew the Great in West Smithfield, London – laying a hand on the walls dating back to Henry I, I reflect back on the many tumultuous events they’ve witnessed, and survived, from the Great Fire to the Blitz.”
UKIP leader Nigel Farage chose St Thomas à Becket Church on Romney Marsh which is outside the South Thanet constituency where he is candidate.
“A uniquely situated church in the middle of the marsh. Quite enchanting.”
The National Churches Trust asked the party leaders for their choice.
