Matt Redman and LZ7 Jump for Justice
Matt Redman and LZ7 had a sell out concert recently in Peterborough when they performed at KingsGate Community Church as the last evening of their tour promoting awareness for the A21 Campaign.
The evening started with all the high energy and high volume we have come to expect and enjoy from everybody’s favourite Christian urban group LZ7. They were then followed by Beth Redman giving a talk about the A21 Campaign explaining how there are an estimated 27,000,000 people being trafficked and in slavery across the globe. Beth also introduced us to Julia Immonen who along with a crew of other women rowed the Atlantic Ocean in a record breaking time, again raising awareness of human trafficking.
Beth Redman described the show saying it was a “Beautiful last night. People jumping for Justice!”
The A21 Campaign is comprised of individuals, organizations, government officials, and people like you who are committed to abolishing injustice in the 21st century. A21’s goal is four-fold:
•Prevent people from being trafficked
•Protect and support those who have been trafficked
•Prosecute traffickers, and strengthen legal responses to trafficking
•Partner with law enforcement, service providers and community members to provide a comprehensive front against trafficking
If you love LZ7 you are in luck because they are back in Peterborough on the 16th and 23rd March.
For the second year running Peterborough have the pleasure of hosting LZ7, from Manchester and part of the Christian charity The Message Trust, for two weeks.
Working with various church Youth teams, LZ7 will be visiting secondary schools in Peterborough, performing in assemblies and spending time talking to pupils about topics like ‘making good life choices’. Last year was a great success when they visited Thomas Deacon Academy with lots of positive feedback from both teachers and pupils.
This year it’s bigger and better! And they will be performing in two gigs at KingsGate, Friday 16th and Friday 23rd March. This is due to the amount of schools they will cover in both weeks, the performances will be identical.
The schools they plan to visit are:
