Rediscovering Justice: 50th Anniversary of Martin Luther King's Death

Event details


Westminster Abbey, 20 Dean's Yard, London, SW1P 3PA, United Kingdom


On the 50th anniversary of the assassination Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr, Christian Aid and Westminster Abbey will be hosting a National Service and a Symposium on 4 April. Christian Aid enjoyed a warm relationship with Dr King. On his occasional visits to the UK, he would prioritise visits to our offices. Moreover, alongside the former British Council of Churches, Christian Aid would make appointments for Dr King and helped with his press and media. We hope this moment would remind us all of the need to continue challenging injustice and inequality and even more - rediscovering and being agents of justice as a worthwhile and significant cause. The service, held as a partnership between the Abbey with Christian Aid, will focus on three areas that distinguished Dr King’s fight for justice and equality: His Motivation – exploring the role of faith in seeking justice His Conviction – the passion emanating from the world and circumstances of the marginalised and disadvantaged communities His Actions – exploring his approach and what he did to bring about transformation This is a public event and we would love for you to attend.  Please book your tickets for the following events:  National Service – Book now Symposium – Book now
