Celebration and Inspiration

Join us for an evening of celebration with Bishop Sarah as we’re inspired by the impact that compassionate parishes are making in the Diocese of London.

An evening of celebration and inspiration

The evening will celebrate Diocese of London parishes who are compassionately serving communities with the love of God through 1,500 volunteers, creating positive outcomes for over 14,000 Londoners.

That’s not Good News that’s Very Good News.

The evening will inspire guests to join in with this growing movement of people who, through their love of Christ, are drawn into loving their neighbours and neighbourhoods.

“The Good News of Jesus Christ motivates people to want to change the world for the better. That’s the message behind these remarkable statistics, which demonstrate the impact that local churches are making across the landscape of London.” Rt Revd Adrian Newman, Bishop of Stepney

The flow

18:30: Doors open

Light refreshments and a chance to connect with each other

18:45 Welcome

18:55 Interactive Zones

This part of the programme is designed to raise awareness of some of the most significant issues facing London and Londoners; to connect you to parishes who are creatively engaging with these issues and who equally want to encourage you to be bold in responding. It is our hope that through your engagement, you will not only be able to hear but also experience the work and value add that Capital Mass is seeking to make into these wonderful parishes.

The crypt will be sectioned into 4 zones and guests, with glass in hand, will be invited to visit each station (in predetermined groups) to engage with the activities and parishes who are running those areas.

Each zone will focus on one poverty and inequality theme into which our parishes are responding.

When you arrive at a zone, you’ll meet and hear from parishes who are engaged as well as experience what many of London’s residents experience on a daily basis.

Zone 1 Homelessness in London

Zone 2 Refugees and Economic, Destitute and Forced Migrants in London

Zone 3 Isolation and Loneliness in London

Zone 4 Debt and Financial Exclusion in London

We will then be drawn back together
