A Service of Thanksgiving to mark the 70th Anniversary of the Landing of the Windrush will be held in the Abbey on Friday 22nd June 2018 at Noon.

When the MV Windrush docked at Tilbury in the Port of London on 22nd June 1948 the ship was carrying 492 passengers from the port of Kingston in Jamaica.

The name Windrush has as a result come to be used as shorthand for migration from the Caribbean and, by extension, for the beginning of modern British multicultural society.

It’s very hard not to be enthusiastic working at the Abbey. If this place doesn’t make you smile I don’t know what will.
