Birmingham Christian leaders in call for peaceful protest against racial injustice

Birmingham-based Bishop Mike Royal (Apostolic Pastoral Congress) and Pastor Dave Ellis (Heart of England Baptist Association) are among a group of senior leaders calling on Christian ministers and believers from around the UK to support a peaceful protest against racial injustice in UK society.

At a time when the issue of racial inequality is being highlighted, the organisers want to stand with all who have suffered inequality in the UK. They also wish to stand with the younger generations who are making their voices heard on this issue. The gathering will press the government to implement the 200+ recommendations regarding racial equality made by successive governments that are, as yet, unimplemented.

The protest will take place in Parliament Square, London, beginning at 12 noon on Friday 3 July. The organisers specifically request that there be no defacing of statues, or any kind of violence.

The organising team is:

  • Revd Comfort Adejoh – Pastor, Redeemed Christian Church of God
  • Revd Alex Afriyie – Chair of Directors, London Baptist Association
  • Revd David Ellis – Regional Minister, Heart of England Baptist Association
  • Revd Yinka Oyekan – President, Baptist Union of Great Britain
  • Bishop Mike Royal – Apostolic Pastoral Congress
