'Tell It' is back, bringing you another night of spoken word, music and poetry from young adults across the London District. And this time, it's LIVE!
Performances will cover a variety of Christian themes that reflect the personal experiences of young adults across London's Methodist churches.
There will be testimony, there will be praise, there will be stories of journeys to, and walks with God. Come for the fun or come for the fellowship. Either way you won't be disappointed.
*Please note that the views expressed at this event are those of the individual performer(s) and are offered as a contribution to the life and work of the Church. They do not necessarily represent the beliefs or theology of the Methodist Church in Britain, nor are they to be taken as statements from the Methodist Conference.
