A host of leading Christian performers will be coming to the East End for the Halloween season to raise awareness of vulnerable children worldwide.
Acts like The Voice’s J Marie Cooper will be performing at Christ Church Spitalfields, in Commercial Street, Whitechapel, in support of World Vision’s Carve a Heart campaign.
The free music and worship event will be held on Friday, October 28, from 5 to 7pm, and supporters will be urged to think about children living in constant fear every night - not just at Halloween.
David Plowman, Christian engagement manager at World Vision UK, said: “We were overwhelmed with the number of guests we had at our worship event at Christ Church in Spitalfields last Halloween and this year we want to reach out to new supporters.
“If you can’t make the music evenings, join us by carving a heart in your Halloween pumpkin as a symbol of hope. Then text HEART to 70060 to donate £3 to World Vision’s work, and turn a night of fear into a night of lasting hope.”
