Spirit of Windrush: Contributions to Multicultural Britain – A Service of Thanksgiving
Friday 22nd June 2018
Churches Together in England (CTE) is holding this national event in Westminster Abbey to mark the 70th anniversary of the landing of the Empire Windrush at Tilbury Docks on 22 June 1948 carrying over 500 passengers, and which is recognised as the start of the Windrush era.
Admission is free but everyone must register and receive a ticket accompanied by personal ID on the day.
The preacher will be the Revd Canon Joel Edwards.
The service in Westminster Abbey will involve worship, music, carefully chosen words, lessons and prayers and will touch on the themes that are relevant and strident, namely the invitation, the recognising of struggle following the invitation and the creative, unique and significant contributions made by the citizens and their descendants since then.
