This curtain-raiser for Christian Aid Week will fund the support we give in countries to help communities working to free themselves from poverty and tackle the challenges of climate change.
As a curtain-raiser to Christian Aid Week, you're invited to take part in the London Freedom Walk, inspired by our Circle the City event. Following a 10k route around the capital, walkers discover the history of some of the city’s churches and the stories behind the work they do to free people from poverty, illness and injustice.
Participants also raise money for Christian Aid to fund the support we give in countries such as Malawi, to help communities working to free themselves from poverty and tackle the challenges of climate change.
In 2023, for our first event, more than 100 walkers and volunteers started at St James’ Piccadilly, with a short send-off service at 11.30am from Revd Dr Ayla Lepine, and ended at St Paul’s Cathedral, in time for the 5pm Evensong.
They raised more than £1,000! The route included St Martin-in-the-Fields, St Bride's and St Bartholomew's. London Freedom Walk offers people the chance to see things they might otherwise miss when travelling around London, and to spend time with friends and family, while helping take steps to end poverty around the world.
