Our Connecting Communities team ran a busy programme of events in the week before Easter.

A variety of churches, community leaders, organisations and individuals all came together to enjoy, support and engage with us throughout the week.

We would like to thank Emmanuel Church Northwood, St John the Baptist Church, Sheepcote Road and Harrow Baptist Church for providing us with venues for our lunch and coffee morning events.

At all the events our guests enjoyed delicious feasts and a variety of musical entertainment. We were delighted to have been joined by Mayor of Harrow Councillor Kareema Marikar, the Mayor and Mayoress of Hillingdon John and Fiona Morgan, and Brent Cllr Krupesh Hirani.

We were also delighted to have a number of presentations on different topics by Pastoral Apprentice at Emmanuel Church Ben Evans, and Harrow Mencap volunteers and staff Rupa and Emma.   

Our guests left some fantastic comments about all three events:
