On Saturday 5th May the Mayor of Bristol, Marvin Rees, and Christian Action Bristol are hosting ‘Building Bristol as a City of Hope’ at City Hall.  This event, which is invitation only, aims to inspire ‘working together to transform the city for good’, covering issues such as homelessness, food poverty, personal debt and parenting.  Over 200 invited guests from business, the public and voluntary sectors and the Christian community will gather to hear inspiring stories and practical vision for change, with contributions and keynotes from Mayor Marvin Rees, Alex Kittow (CEO of Southmead Development Trust), Councillor Paul Smith (Cabinet Member for Housing), Councillor Helen Godwin (Cabinet Member for Women, Children and Young People) and others

Bristol is known to be an innovative and incredible city. It’s been identified as one of the best cities in the UK to live and although for many that is true, for thousands of Bristolians that is not the case. Like other large cities, Bristol has major problems with homelessness, inequality, food poverty and personal debt, to name but a few.  It is both a city of opportunity and one of need.  This event focuses on the unique opportunity to imagine a better future for Bristol, to make a real difference to the city over the coming months and years.  The aim is to gather people in a new spirit and with a willingness to work closely and collaboratively to help Bristol heal, grow and flourish to reach its full potential as a city.  

This event is an exciting opportunity to bring together people from all over the city to explore how they can partner together to help transform and change the city of Bristol for good.
