Faith Minister Lord Bourne today (4 December 2018) embarked on his latest national Faith Tour to shine a spotlight on the central role faith institutions play in building strong, resilient communities.
The tour – ‘Belief in communities: bridging divides and strengthening communities’ – will commence with a visit to the Highway of Holiness Church in Tottenham and will be followed by monthly flagship visits across the country to engage directly with faith communities.
Minister for Faith Lord Bourne said:
Large or small, faith communities are often at the heart of a local area – the glue that binds our society together.
The length and breadth of this country, faith institutions form community hubs and support centres, as well as places of worships.
The Highway of Holiness Church in Tottenham is a shining example of this – providing support to its community with a homeless shelter for those most in need.
