On Sunday 2nd June churches from all over the borough of Lewisham will be coming together to pray and praise. The four primary objectives that the LCU planners/sponsors had for the event are listed as:
1) The event will be a celebration and promotion of unity among Christian Churches within the London borough of Lewisham.
2) The event is a platform to highlight and drive Christian initiatives currently operating within the Lewisham Borough.
3) The event will aim to raise the awareness of current areas of concern which specifically impact Christians working and living within our city and borough.
4) The event will aim to be filled with Christians praying and worshipping together with a view to working more together to positively impact Lewisham borough through practical help.
Following Saturday’s meeting on May 25th the planning team have now added the following element (see below) to the original objectives, which is also the headline of our press release update:
