More than 500 Christians gathered in central London last month to celebrate 40 years of the charity Christian Action Research and Education (CARE).
A service of thanksgiving was held at Westminster Chapel and featured CARE’s Chairman Lyndon Bowring and his wife Celia, a co-founder of CARE.
In a joint statement the couple said, ‘We're overwhelmed with God’s faithfulness to CARE over the past 40 years and believe that this generation needs CARE more than ever.
‘We’re exceedingly confident in the current CARE team and trust that by His grace the latter days will be even more significant than the former.’
CARE’s origins lie in the Nationwide Festival of Light, a movement of Christians in the 1970s that strove for greater Christian engagement with culture and politics.
