A Special Service for The World Reimagined!

It was a joyous occasion to witness Bryony Benge-Abbott’s globe being honored at an exclusive service at St Paul’s Cathedral, where it received a blessing from Bishop Lusa Nsenga-Ngoy. The service attracted more than 1500 attendees, including school children from across the Diocese of London.

Bryony Benge-Abbott is a British Trinidadian artist working in painting, wild drawing walks, textiles, installation and street art. Combining visual arts with a 13 year background producing science and social history exhibitions, most recently establishing and leading the exhibitions programme at the UK’s largest lab, The Francis Crick Institute.

Schools from the Diocese of London can now have the unique opportunity to host this wonderful globe at their own schools. Provided they can show their strong dedication to advancing racial justice. This may include engaging projects focussed on racial equity, undertaking initiatives that involve their church in striving for greater racial justice, and developing a curriculum designed to equip children with the necessary experiences to become advocates for racial justice. Schools who wish to apply for this unique opportunity can find out more here: Apply now.

The globe has already been hosted at St Mary’s in Islington. The headteacher of St Marys, Anthony David, said,

“My aim is that the globe will provide an opportunity for our community to pause, think and consider how our world could be reimagined, what would be needed in order to achieve that and to give license to our community to lead”

The Benge-Abbott artwork is inspired by the legacy of the Kenyan activist Wangari Maathai who fought injustice against environmental degradation. Maathai was an innovative thinker who  understood the interconnectedness of patriarchy, racial justice and environmental degradation. She was also a definitive actor and organiser, who founded The Green Belt Movement, joined political office and received a Nobel Peace Prize.


Bishop Lusa Nsenga-Ngoy was ordained in 2008 and served as an Assistant Curate in the Diocese of Canterbury, before becoming Vicar of St Aidan, Gravesend in 2012. In 2017 he was appointed BAME Mission and Ministry Enabler in the Diocese of Leicester, wherein he oversaw an increase in representation and participation of those from UK Minority Ethnic (UKME) backgrounds in the life and structures of Leicester Diocese. Lusa is a trustee of St Mellitus College, Church Army, and deputy chair of the Board of Initiatives of Change UK.

In 2019, Bryony Benge-Abbot’s commitment to public engagement through street art was acknowledged by the Mayor of London, who highlighted Bryony as a ‘hidden credit to the city’ as part of the International Women’s Day celebrations.
