Keir Hardie

It will be a 100 years on 26 September 2015 since the death of James Keir Hardie, a former member of our founding church, Park Road Evangelical Union Church. Keir Hardie rose from very humble beginnings, working in the mines of Lanarkshire, to become one of Britain’s most notable politicians and the first Labour leader.
