Our heart is full of Joy and gratitude as we thank God on the occasion of celebrating 10 years of God's FAITHFULNESS and His support for the privilege of adding value to lives and impacting the society through community engagement. We aim to continue in being relevant to individuals and families within our church and those outside on the streets, whom we desire to reach with an expression of God's love.
This is the reason for inviting you to join us on Sunday 3rd of March for An In-House Conference on Community Projects, as we launch the movement of LOVE YOUR STREET - LONDON. Our dream and goal is that one day soon, all the streets in London would be adopted, loved and cared for by specific individuals, groups and organizations. We would also be introducing and creating awareness for a TLG Educational Centre, a Care for the Family led Parental class and Joint Effort Tuition for Primary school Children.
