The team is back to cook a delicious cooked breakfast in the kitchen in St Michael’s Centre.  We will be gathering in the auditorium to eat together, followed by a talk.  Each month we have a different speaker on a range of topics. 

Our guest speakers this month are Vernon and Kim Samuels. Both were born in the 1960s to parents who responded to the call to British citizens from the colonies to help rebuild post-war Britain. Vernon has a sporting background in triple jump and is an Olympian and former international athlete who had the privilege of representing Great Britain in the 1988 Olympics held in Seoul. More recently, Vernon engages with young people in schools, inspiring them with his personal and family history on overcoming adversity and breaking through barriers in ambitious pursuit of excellence.

Kim’s background is as a classically trained musician who grew up in the black pentecostal church in London. Kim is currently the choir director of Renewal Choir, which she co-founded in 2005 with Vernon, Chair of Renewal Choir CIC; and the leader of the UWE Bristol Gospel Choir, which has been in operation since 2006.

Both Vernon and Kim are members of the renowned The Kingdom Choir who sang at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The Kingdom Choir is led by Kim’s sister, Karen Gibson MBE.

Vernon and Kim see gospel choirs as being accessible to people from all backgrounds and impacting on many levels – skill, community, encouragement and faith – to mention a few; not just through the music alone but also through the “good news” message that the music brings.

Why not come along, eat breakfast with others in a relaxed and friendly setting, and listen to an interesting and inspiring talk?
