Churches should have done more to pressurise the government to reopen places of worship, one Christian MP has said.

Derek Thomas, Conservative MP for St Ives, said although he’s happy churches in England were allowed to reopen from 4th July, Christians could have done more to lobby on the issue.

‘I am inwardly furious,’ he told Premier Christian Media, ‘that the church — and I absolutely include myself — have not been noisy enough and working enough to make the case for churches and places of worship to open again.’
