In a spiritual sense, as a church, we want to be like that. We want to serve the city, by bringing flourishing, life, hope and fruitfulness by being part of the places and people we serve, and present everywhere we go. Proximity is one of our key values, and our bees are a sign of the hope we seek to bring to the people around us.
And our bees have been busy. In 2019 we launched a project in partnership with a local Hackney beekeeper to make organic honey right here in Hackney Churchyard. After a year’s hard work by both us and our bees, we were extremely proud to launch Hackney Church Honey in summer 2020. It’s fair to say it’s delicious.
