Up to 1,000 people are expected at the New Testament Church of God, Lozells Road, Handsworth, Birmingham, B19 1NP from 5pm – 7pm on Sunday 2 July 2017 at a special WW1 centenary event to honor the often forgotten contributions of millions of African and Caribbean servicemen who contributed to World War 1, 1914 - 1918. The service will take place in the presence of the Lord Mayor of Birmingham Councilor Anne Underwood, with guest speaker The Revd Rose Hudson-Wilkin, Chaplain to Her Majesty The Queen and The Speaker of the House of Commons.
