Faith in Action Victorian Style – An Experience for Children

In May, London City Mission will be hosting Faith in Action Victorian Style (FAVS), a special interactive experience that focuses on LCM missionaries and other Christians during the Victorian era.

Our staff hosted FAVS for schools last year to help children learn how the Christian faith informed the fight against poverty and injustice, and London City Mission’s influence in changing society and sharing the gospel. Much of the content of FAVS fits the material for the RE curriculum in schools.

As part of the experience, children dress up in typical Victorian clothes, ‘meet’ Lord Shaftesbury (a social reformer and supporter of LCM), find out what life was like for poor children in Victorian London and engage with a Bible story via a Magic Lantern Show. The experience ends with an overview of what London City Mission is doing today.

Invitation to May event

This is a special invitation for the children in your family and church to take part in this experience.

It is a unique opportunity for them to understand how faith in God has inspired individuals to make a difference, and to learn about London City Mission’s work with the least reached. FAVS helps children to engage with important issues, such as poverty, and gain a sense of the material and spiritual needs that still exist in London.
