Loving a City with Acts of Kindness
Demonstrating love for no reason, with no agenda is rare in society. But that’s exactly what The City Church in Canterbury and Whitstable sought to do one summer weekend, to be a blessing to the local community.
Over two days, teams of hundreds of volunteers went out into Wincheap area of Canterbury in bright red ‘Love Canterbury’ T-shirts responding to appeals for help. While one team cleaned the streets of litter, the other team visited the homes of those wanting help with painting, gardening and rubbish clearing – acts of kindness. Along the way, others stepped in to help them. The local B&Q store donated supplies so that one elderly man could have his home painted.
