Christian Aid Collective seeks 72 young people for 'Holy Hack'

The Christian Aid Collective is seeking applications from the next generation of creative young Christians to help change the world.

Inspired by the words of Luke 10:1 which describe how God appointed 72 people and sent them out to do his work, the Collective will be inviting 72 successful applicants to the Holy Hack, a special event in central London.

Hannah Henderson, of the Christian Aid Collective, said: Christian Aid Collective is a movement for change, challenging the systems that keep people poor. So we’re calling 18-35 year old believers to come together for a day and put their skills and faith in action. They’ll hear talks from inspiring activists. They’ll work with others who share their passion for social justice. There’ll be worship and good food and like-minded people to get to know. And by the end of the day, there just might be an incredible new idea in the fight against global poverty.

“From Civil Rights to Fair Trade, the Church has a rich heritage of fighting for the rights of others – and now it’s a new generation’s turn to pick up the torch. Because as Martin Luther King said “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”.

“We are not an apathetic generation. We are the doers. The communicators. The designers. The developers. The dreamers. The writers and the worshippers. And together, we really can change the world. So why don’t we?”

The event will take place on 2nd June 2018, the Christian Aid Collective is inviting a select group of influencers to a central London venue to dream bigger and think more creatively. We want to engage even more churches in the fight against global poverty and collaboration and innovation is the key.

There will only be 72 places available on the day. The Collective are welcoming applications from creative people of every discipline, background and theology.

Luke 10:1 “After this the Lord appointed 72 others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place”
