Sydney, AAP –  NSW Premier Mike Baird and Opposition Leader Luke Foley are targeting Christian voters as the March 28 election draws nearer.

The leaders will address a Christian audience on Tuesday evening at Annandale’s Village Church in Sydney’s inner-west.

Although part of the mainstream Anglican Church, the Village Church  as part of its mission aims to influence the media. It includes amongst its values: ‘The universal sinfulness and guilt of humanity since the fall, rendering men and women subject to God’s wrath and condemnation’; and , ‘The expectation of the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.’

Mr Foley will be looking to boost his personal popularity after a poll on Monday found him to be less likeable than the Premier.

Mr Foley lagged Mr Baird on every personality trait except arrogance, where the two tied, the Newspoll found.

A separate survey, also conducted by Newspoll and published on Saturday, found the coalition remains ahead of Labor 54 per cent to 46 per cent on a two-party-preferred basis.
