Spirit of Windrush: A Service of Thanksgiving

12 noon, Friday 22nd June 2018

Westminster Abbey, 20 Deans Yd, Westminster, London SW1P 3PA

This national Churches Together in England event will 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 service 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.
