CTSL Big Gathering – Focus on knife crime

Christians Together is South London (CTSL) have organised an event looking at Knife Crime. Rev Nims Obunge MBE DL will facilitate an evening of information-sharing, networking and prayerful action-planning. Following CTSL’s last big gathering in May, a number of church leaders asked CTSL to look at the urgent issue of knife crime on our streets, in particular affecting young people. Pastor Nims is on the Independent Knife and Violent Crime Reduction Board chaired by Neville Lawrence and working with the Metropolitan Police. The Met have been invited to join this conversation as we discuss ways of working together across borough networks. We will also be joined by Rev Ben Lindsay who is spearheading ecumenical work to tackle knife crime in Lewisham borough, and by XLP who work with young people exposed to gang culture and criminality across 4 South London boroughs.
