Labour MP praises church where pastor opposed LGBT+ rights amid Starmer visit row

The Independent says a Labour MP has provoked anger by praising a church whose pastor opposed gay rights despite the party’s leader Keir Starmer apologising for visiting it.

Stephen Timms was accused of “trolling” LGBT+ people after praising the “extraordinary work” of Jesus House for All the Nations in Brent, north London.

His comment came hours after Sir Keir accepted it was a “mistake” for him to visit the church, which has opened up as a vaccination centre, last week.
