Our regular Sunday Gathering. An opportunity for wisdom, joy, solace, and community – followed by a healthy dose of caffeine, cake, and conversation. Gatherings include live music, a story for children, singing, poetry and literature, a talk from our minister, and time for sharing joys and sorrows.
Today’s theme is ‘Black & British: Those Who Came Before’. People of African heritage did not first appear in Britain with the Windrush generation. There is a long long history - much of which has been conveniently forgotten. It has been a story of acceptance and rejection, progress and setbacks, opportunity and abuse, and pervasive, persistent racism. We’ll explore where we are, where we've been, and where we will go in the future.
