The James Family
We are delighted that we will be partnering with the James family who are working in London with InnerCHANGE.
Joy tells us about their work:
"InnerCHANGE is a charity that consists of communities of missionaries living in poor, marginalised neighbourhoods around the world. In 2013, having spent a year working with Latino gang members in San Francisco, we transferred to the team in East London to serve amongst a predominantly Bangladeshi-Muslim community.
Tower Hamlets has the highest level of child poverty in England, with 9 of the 16 most deprived neighbourhoods being located in our borough (‘End Child Poverty’ 2014). There are high levels of unemployment, alongside high incidences of: poor mental health, social exclusion, religious extremism, drug and alcohol misuse.
Living amongst those we serve, our team exists to 'make disciples of Jesus, bridge cultural and generational gaps, and work for lasting neighbourhood transformation,
for the sake of God’s Kingdom."
