Christian Concern, an organisation that provides legal representation for Christians who are treated unfairly because of their faith, recently celebrated their 10th anniversary at a special service at the Emmanuel Centre in Central London.
Up to 600 guests were in attendance, and listened as co-founder and chief executive, Andrea Williams, challenged UK Christians to “build a movement of people passionate to see Jesus at the heart of society.”
Other speakers during the service included co-founder Pastor Ade Omooba and Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali.
Speaking after the event, co-founder and chief executive, Andrea Williams, said:
“Jesus Christ is the heartbeat of the Christian Concern family. Bringing the life of Jesus to the heart of society is what drives us. We long to see His love, justice, truth, freedom and hope transform the heart of our culture.”
Co-founder and director, Pastor Ade Omooba, stated:
“The last ten years have flown by, and so much has happened in that time. It’s been an amazing journey and a remarkable story of God’s sustaining power and goodness, since a small group of Christian leaders from diverse backgrounds decided to take a stand and start Christian Concern. But we’re conscious that this is only the beginning. We’re looking to grow the Christian Concern family, so that we can be even more effective in bringing the good news of Jesus to the heart of society.
“I pray the Lord grants us great grace and pace for the race ahead.”
