Churches Together for Greater Bristol & Together 4 Bristol are pleased to announce the appointment of Carmen Carrol, as the new part-time Keyboard Networker. The Keyboard Trust aim is to promote a culture of racial justice and equality in and through the churches in the city of Bristol.
There will be opportunities for Christian leaders from all ethnic backgrounds to build deep and lasting relationships: through meeting and praying with one another. Towards being more culturally engaging and to bring value to its congregation that have different ethnic groups.
This position was vacant for 18 years, it’s befitting to pay homage to Leotta ‘Leo’ Goodridge who was a community activist for equality and social justice in the community and was also a founding member of the Bristol council Race Forum and was also was the Keyboard Networker.
Carmen stated “It’s important to have bridges that bring equality in our churches and community. It’s equally important to not do things that will break those bridges down.
Carmen is no stranger to community involvement, a background focus on equality and an enabler for change, as a community and youth worker, events promoter & marketer and currently a DJ presenter on the radio promoting urban gospel music with her husband for the past 8 years.
We realise that inclusiveness takes on many forms; we work on the inside then on the outside, its better than it has been, but there is still challenges. First we look at what our faith teaches us about unity, “Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body" 1 Corinthians 12v12.
Then secondly we focus on how we build on the best ways to engage in our community in education, prisons, mental health care, family support and community life.
