About 50% of the congregation at St Edward's are from African or Afro Carribean backgrounds. We have members from Antigua, Monserrat, Jamaica, San Tome, Sierra Leone, Ghana and various parts of Nigeria. And some of them have amazing stories to tell, from Lydia's experiences of training as a nurse in rainy Salford (before meeting her husband and moving to London) to our most recent news about Atim, whose great grandfather was Bishop Alphonso Chukwuma Onyeabo, who was the first Igbo Bishop in the Anglican Church across the world. He was based in Nigeria and Atim's family have sent us a great photograph of the Bishop with his wider family. Atim is now one of our Deputy Wardens, a safeguarding officer and part of our Pro Bono legal team; in her professional life she is a Barrister at Amethyst Chambers in Bromley.
