The event will bring together Pentecost Festival partners Share Jesus International (SJI), Christian Aid, and Christian Aid supporters.
Attendees will be able ‘pray, act and give’, sharing a special time of reflection and celebration, and Loretta Minghella will speak about the work Christian Aid is doing in the struggle against poverty and injustice.
Christian Aid’s Head of Church Relations Dionne Gravesande said: "We are very excited to welcome the performers, speakers, and supporters to this exciting event where we will stand with the Church at Pentecost, and share our work to prepare people for the fight against inequality."
Michah Challenge International Director Joel Edwards added: "History has never known such an avalanche of human desire for a better world. The prevailing ugliness only urges us to want more change. Change the World concert is another expression of that desire. And the Jesus Agenda provides us with a unique tool kit for change."
