Hello! I’m Allegra and I am the Evangelisation Coordinator for Notre Dame de France, Leicester Square and the main Event Leader for Spirit in the City. It is really exciting to have so many opportunities to share the joy of the Gospel in the West End of London, most particularly through the Spirit in the City initiatives, including the summer Festival. This Festival has been running since 2006, and seen much success thanks to the dedication, enthusiasm and joy brought on by the teams of volunteers involved in its preparation and delivery. One cannot encounter God and remain unchanged however small the encounter. The Festival, through its varied programme creates space for grace to happen – space for God to speak and touch His children. I know so many people are blessed through this event and I pray that many of you will consider being part of the team this year so that we can continue to provide the space for God to do what God alone can do. Why not join the team this year? For more information, drop me a line and I will be happy to fill you in!
Obviously, any Coordinator’s role would not be possible without the number of people who work behind the scene to help plan and develop the programme each year as well as those who are involved in various aspects in the actual festival.
For this, we have a Core Team, some members new some more experienced, who bring expertise in various areas and whose passion for Christ shines through their generosity and creativity as the programme takes shape.
With the Core Team, we also have a huge team of people who volunteer on the day and whose joy and inspiring faith have made an impression on the people who come away feeling refreshed, renewed and some… even on fire!
As the Lord can never be outdone in generosity, it is often remarked that those who received the biggest blessings are those who came to serve! So why not join the team for next summer and bless others with the gift of God in you!
