Pray for Ahaba Cafe – a project the Church Urban Fund is helping All Hallows Church, Bow to connect with young mums, local Bengalis and teenagers of the Lincoln Estate. The Cafe gives young mums a place to go and find support during the day, a meeting place for teenagers, and a place where Muslim Bengali men and church members can come together to cook food for the cafe. It provides opportunities for people to volunteer and gain skills – and is becoming a community hub to connect people to other services at All Hallows and for different community groups to use.
Pray also for Near Neighbours (East London) – a project run by CTC as part of the wider national programme, administered by the Church of England and the Church Urban Fund). Pray for its Co-ordinator, Tim Clapton, and for all he does to encourage local people to develop projects which bring people together across faiths and cultures in their neighbourhood.
