The Patron's Lunch 2016

On Sunday June 12th 2016, The Mall in St James’s Park will be transformed for its largest ever street party to celebrate The Queen’s patronage of over 600 charities and organisations on the occasion of her 90th birthday.

The not-for-profit event will also raise money for a newly created Patron’s Fund, which will support the charitable organisations within the UK and across the Commonwealth to which Her Majesty The Queen acts as a Patron.

At the centre of the event will be the very people she has helped over the decades; The Patron’s Organisations. This group of more than 600 charities and organisations is represented across the UK and the Commonwealth and covers 17 different sectors ranging from children, young people and the elderly to armed services, environment and agriculture of which the CLCGB has been invited to attend.

The Servant Queen

‘The Servant Queen and The King she serves’ is the title of a special short book being published in the new year to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday.  It is, in essence, her story of faith in Jesus, and includes both anecdotes from those closest to her faith, her faith in her own words and a specially written foreword written by her.  The retail price is £7 but if you continue reading you can get them for just £1 each, for distribution by churches, schools, groups, residential homes, street parties – basically anywhere a testimony of faith from the Monarch and head of the Church of England might be useful.

So far over 30,000 copies of this high quality, souvenir resource have been pre-ordered.  It has also been endorsed by the Department of Education for use in Schools and Colleges.  You can pre-order your copies here (minimum order is 10 copies, one Diocese has ordered 10,000 to give away!). Pre-orders will then be sent by the end of January. With an initial run of 100,000 copies are orders coming in fast, order yours now to be sure!
