The first black woman Chaplain to the Queen and the Speaker of the House of Commons will address a special thanksgiving service for Black History Month.
Revd Rose Hudson-Wilkin, a vicar in Haggerston, is guest speaker at this Sunday’s service at All Saints’ Church in Stratford.
High Commissioners of Commonwealth countries and members of different local congregations are expected to attend the Church Street venue.
The service will also feature performance by steel band, Harry and his Band, and by the Church of God UK Choir.
The church’s vicar, Revd Stennett Kirby, said “We are all members of the human race, so everyone so everyone is welcome, provided health and safety rules allow us all to come in. “It’s usually a very happy occasion with lots of exotic food afterwards.”
