The event was hosted by Matt Bird and other members of the Cinnamon Leadership team and the guest speaker was Archbishop of Canterbury, Most Rev. Justin Welby. Following the keynote speech, there was a discussion panel which included:

Most Rev. Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury;
Deputy Chief Constable Michael Banks, National Policing Lead on Citizens in Policing;

Pastor Agu Irukwu, Chair of the Redeemed Christian Church of God;

Clare De Silva, Community Impact Team Leader, Cinnamon Network.[The Panel]The Panel

The Cinnamon Network invited fifty Local Church Networks who serve their communities to enage with a Cinnamon Faith Action Audit, like the one by Tavistock Churches Together previously reported in CTe-News. Collectively, they provide evidence for the impact and value of social action delivered by local churches and all other faith groups. This evidence will strengthen the confidence of local churches and that of local authorities, police and other agencies to work more closely together. The final results of the audit can be viewed from the website of the Cinnamon Trust re Faith Aidit, where there is an introductory video, pictures of the event and a link to the report.
