Streatham Stands Together – Saturday 8th February

Show your love for Streatham this Saturday, by coming down to the High Road and adding your message of solidarity outside the Odeon 10am-4pm,  joining with the choirs meeting at St Leonard's Church 10am, or shopping and eating locally to support local businesses.

This event is organised by many Streathamites including Streatham BID, faith groups, LoveStreatham, HeartStreatham and local councillors. 

We want to promote #StreathamisOpen and all its meanings – from the literal one about the High Road after its part closure Sunday and Monday, to our pride in our community’s diversity and resilience, to the connections with the Mayor’s LondonisOpen post-Brexit message.

Parish Priest, Rev Gregory Verissimo, is also inviting the community to attend a special service to be held at the English Martyrs Catholic Church, 2, Mitcham Lane, Streatham SW16 6NN.

After the sad events of last Sunday’s terror attack in Streatham, they are organising a day of Prayer, of Unity and Peace on Saturday 8th February at 10am.

The service will be led by Archbishop John Wilson, the Catholic Archbishop of Southwark. All are welcome to join. The church will be open from 9am until midday to anyone who would like to come in to light a candle for peace or say a prayer.
