After three years of praying, planning and longing, Root and Branch Change is about to be reborn. And you are invited to the delivery room!
All through the dark days of the Covid-19 pandemic, when travel to South Africa was impossible, we were in close contact with our partners in the country and together, dreaming of the day when we can surge forward with a bold strategy to mobilise “light carriers” into the darkest place in South Africa’s oldest undeveloped (but not forgotten) township.
To mark the birth of the vision, a very special celebration event is taking place at St Mary’s Church, Church Street, Chesham, at 7pm on Saturday 19 November – starting with a fast-moving multi-media presentation and finishing with a reception with drinks and canapés.
The Root and Branch Change Trustees and volunteers would love you to join them as their guests at this special event. You don’t need to book a place but are advised to arrive early to be sure of a seat.
“We have a packed programme and know that everyone present will be inspired by stories of transformed lives,” says Paul Brooks, the organisation’s Chairman, “and uplifted by the glorious music and vivid images in the presentation. But most of all, we are praying that everyone will leave with stronger faith, knowing that light really can shine brightly in the pitch blackness of poverty, fear and danger.”
Popular worship leader, Nick Collard, and band will feature in the programme along with interviews with South African and local partners, and along with an exhibition and information bureau, we are hoping to build an exact replica of a slum shack home, so you can see “how the other half live”.
