On Monday the 20th of January, Mike Freer MP held an event in Parliament to pay tribute to volunteers from Brent Cross based Jesus House. Over 50 local volunteers based across Barnet and North London were invited to attend the event, where a reception was held. Attendees were also provided with a tour of the House of Commons by Mike Freer.
The organisation’s Christmas on Jesus event, which takes place annually, provides a network of volunteers to distribute hampers to some of the poorest families in the UK.
Speaking after the event, Mike Freer said “I am delighted to welcome volunteers from Jesus House to the House of Commons for a thank you reception. The Christmas Hamper initiative helps so many local people and it is only right that the excellent work of the church and the volunteers is recognised”.
Jesus House, lead by Pastor Agu Irukwu, are an evangelical church who are renowned for their local community work. Further information can be found at www.jesushouse.org.uk
