Dear <<First Name>>, 

Division within Christianity has a long history. Before there were even church buildings, there were church disagreements. That means that the work of peace, reconciliation and Christian unity will also require intentional and long term effort. 

I am honoured to be able to host to a colleague at AIC this Sunday who has dedicated her ministry to this work. Rev. Liddy Barlow serves the Executive Minister of Christian Associates of Southwest Pennsylvania, an organisation of Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant Christians in the 10 counties of greater Pittsburgh (  Rev. Barlow also played a key role in community healing and witness following the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting in 2018. She and her family are spending the summer on sabbatical in the UK, and she will be our guest preacher on Sunday.

Liddy and I have been friends since 2009, and she is an excellent speaker and leader.  I am looking forward to hearing her reflections on unity in the context of AIC, where our regular congregation gathers Christians of many different denominations and backgrounds into one worshiping community.

I'm also looking forward to catching up with many of you, having been on leave for the last two weeks. I hope to see you Sunday.

Pastor Jennifer

Singing our Faith

For the summer of 2022, our ministry team wants to build a sermon series around favourite hymns and songs from our congregation. Tell us the music that moves your heart and your spirit so we can share it together as a congregation!

We will also use the list to choose music for worship in the coming months, and we hope it helps us expand our repertoire and learn new hymns and songs together. Click the button below.
Tell Us Your Favourite Hymns and Songs!
In the month of July we are studying a series entitled, The Afterlife: Scripture and Tradition. Newcomers are always welcome to join us for open, expansive conversation on the ancient scriptures and what they mean for our faith today.

We recently submitted application to Camden Giving's Equality Fund which would help us to sustain and grow our refugee ministries, and we are excited to announce that it has been successful! The grant is for £30,000 over two years, which could potentially allow us to fund a part-time project worker role to manage the day-to-day support needs, freeing Jonathan to do more strategic and relational work. The process involved long conversations with members of the church; completing an expression of interest form; and then being invited to complete a full application.

Be on the lookout for more information as the work develops, and get in touch with Jonathan if you'd like to learn more!
Hosting Ukrainian Refugees
Working alongside local councils and the government's Homes for Ukraine scheme, we will be providing wrap-around support for Ukrainians who are arriving as well as supporting those who will be hosting them.
  • If you have a spare room/property that you could offer for at least six months, we can help with furnishing and  wraparound support.
  • If you know of Ukrainian nationals looking to come to London, we can match you with members of the congregation and the local area already looking to host.
  • Look out for ways to be involved in the coming weeks and months as this will be an ongoing response, long after the war has left the headlines
