In the immediate aftermath of the Grenfell Tower fire, the local parish church became a focal point of the relief effort and a gathering place for a traumatised community.Later, it worked closely with other community and faith groups to provide a compassionate network of support. The vicar of the parish church recounts and reflects on the role of the church in times of great calamity.In this bold and prophetic challenge, Alan Everett shows that the church's response was possible only because it had opened its doors long ago, building relationships with the most marginalised in the community. Its effectiveness was born out of a patient, faithful, unheroic ministry that is all too easily underestimated. Through gripping reportage and searching theological reflection, After the Fire demonstrates how parish ministry can be a living symbol of God's love, and a vital sign of hope. The book is in three parts, covering Response, Reflection, and Finding words. The book is a powerful work of advocacy and a testimony to the parish church's unique and ongoing place in contemporary Britain.
