Speaking out against human trafficking

By Tim Clarke Thursday 08 November 2012 Updated: 09/11 12:01

THE FIGHT to end human trafficking will be the focus of a special event at a church in Worcester this Sunday (November 11).

Anti-human trafficking organisation Hope for Justice will be visiting St Peter’s Baptist Church as part of its Abolitionists tour of the UK. Ben Cooley, CEO of Hope for Justice, Mark Stevens from Abundant Life Church, Bradford and the Hope for Justice team will share stories of victims rescued from human trafficking in the UK and tell of their restored hope.

Martin Hodson, senior minister at St Peter’s, said: “Ben Cooley spoke at one of our services earlier in the year. The stories he told us were compelling. It’s shocking to hear that modern day slavery is happening in cities and towns around the UK.”

The event starts at 7pm, doors open from 6.30pm. Tickets cost £5 in advance (plus a small booking fee) from www.abolitionistworcester.eventbrite.com or £8 on the door.
