Sunday Gathering: Developing Grassroots Power

  • New Unity @ Newington Green Primary School Mathias Road London, England United Kingdom (map)

Please note: this event takes place at our temporary 2019 home, Newington Green Primary School. Find out more about the move here.

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.

The theme of this week's Gathering will be “Developing Grassroots Power”. Democracy comes from the Greek for “people” and “power”. However, studies suggest that younger generations are less likely to believe it is 'essential'. Recent trends like the election of Donald Trump and Brexit have been linked to people feeling powerlessness. What does power and community organising mean for our own community, as we pursue love and justice in the world?
