On Sunday, July 19th, a service of thanksgiving was held to mark the closure of St Andrew’s, Kilburn and London Interfaith Centre (LIFC), the congregation’s numbers having declined over the years as age, infirmity and removal from the area took their toll.
The closure of St Andrew’s also marked the end of the work of the London Inter Faith Centre. It had been set up to encourage mutual understanding between faiths and ideologies and over the last twenty years made a significant contribution well beyond the London Borough of Brent.
Local Christian communities are formed and dispersed but the mission of God continues. Every Christian is a bearer of Good News, wherever we go, we take good news with us. We give thanks to God for the witness of the two congregations and the vision of cooperation enabled by the inter faith centre.
