From Churches Together in England:
As you will know, we are holding a national event 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. ‘Spirit of Windrush: contributions to Multicultural Britain – a service of thanksgiving’ will take place from midday on Friday 22 June 2018 in Westminster Abbey. Admission is free but everyone must register and receive a ticket accompanied by personal ID on the day.

The preacher will be the Rev’d Canon Joel Edwards and in attendance will be national political and religious leaders as well as members of the diverse communities that make up multicultural Britain.
