Health Fest

Hundreds of people walked through Troxy Theatre on Sunday 28th August, for the South England Conference’s first free London-wide health expo.

With this HealthFest, it was the first time the SEC officially took the unique Seventh-day Adventist health message to the community, under the theme: ‘The best you can be: Body, Mind, Spirit’.

Between free health checks and several stations that were set up throughout the hall, offering advice and information ranging from food samples, to 20-minute health lectures, to Zumba dancing exercise classes, several professional guest speakers held talks on bettering the community’s health from various aspects.  Some of these workshops included ‘Healthy Eating on a Budget’ with Angelette Muller, ‘Move It or Lose It’ exercise class with Eugenie Burton, ‘Very Easy Vegan’ with Kirly Sue, and lifestyle lectures with Dr Chidi.

However, this was not the first day of the HealthFest.  After celebrating the life that God has given us and the spiritual side of health at Ruach City Church on Saturday 27th August with over 1,000 attendees, the weekend concluded with a unique musical stage production, written by producer and director Mervyn Wier, titled ‘Rhythm of Life’.  With internationally acclaimed a capella vocal group Black Voices, the audience was able to sing along in between skits and real-life stories with Dr Chidi Ngwaba.

Event organisers are enthusiastically exploring the possibility of HealthFest becoming an annual event as it appears to be a necessity, both for our Adventist community as well as our friends and the communities in which we live.
