I am excited to invite you all to join us as the Evangelical Alliance marks the fifth anniversary of the One People Commission on Wednesday, 21 November at the Emmanuel Centre in Westminster.

At the Evangelical Alliance we are fully committed to working together to see a more unified, integrated, and diverse church across the UK, which is why we established the One People Commission (OPC) in 2013. This network connects hundreds of church leaders from a diverse range of black and ethnic minority churches and seeks to prove that, for both church and community, integration is possible and diversity is good! 

The event, which will be full of worship, stories, song, testimonies and interviews, will gather together representatives from the OPC as well as welcome new members on board. I’m also excited that we will be launching our new buildings resource as part of the evening as well as profiling the newly published book Simply Eat as part of the South Asian Forum (SAF) and great​com​mis​sion​.co​.uk.

"Whatever our country of origin , language or ethnicity, Jesus calls us to be one people, unified together for His mission."

I’m really looking forward to sharing in an evening together praising God for growth in unity across the church that has be witnessed over the last five years, but also to extend the vision further into the coming years.

I hope you’ll be able to join us this significant moment in the life of the Evangelical Alliance and the journey of the One People Commission. Join us if you are a church or ministry leader, involved in a network of churches, or just starting out in hoping to increase the missional outreach of your church – we would love to see you on 21 November to celebrate and prayerfully move forwards together.
