- What we could do to increase turnout is to show our presence in villages, towns and cities.

So that people understand that the church can mean a lot to everyone, says Karin Perers (C) from Avesta, chairman of the Church Council.

On Sunday, September 19, it is time for a church election.

The groups that stand in that election are called nomination groups and, according to the Church of Sweden, roughly correspond to parties in the general election.
