The Coronavirus crisis is the largest public health crisis in London in living memory. The Greater London Authority Mayor’s office have formulated a Recovery Plan
identifying nine ‘missions’ and invited community groups and businesses to help “reimagine our city as a place with a better long-term future.”
Movement for Recovery London is bringing together local churches, church unity groups, charities and denominations for the common good. From the nine missions identified by the GLA, we will focus initially on the mission responding to Mental Health and Wellbeing. The Christian community already provides pastoral support to many in the city and has a large footprint in local communities, delivering, for example, hundreds of toddler groups, significant elderly care services and food banks across the city.
Working alongside Thrive London and drawing upon other charities, such as Kintsugi Hope, Movement for Recovery London looks to mobilise hundreds of churches and 1000s of ordinary Christian to make an impact on the mental health and wellbeing of the capital.
