The leader of a planned church for Gypsies in Leicester is insisting local people's fears about the project are unfounded.
Councillors in the city are being urged by planning officials to approve plans for the Light and Life Church, but residents fear it'll mean noise, litter, crime and "big fat Gypsy weddings".
Pastor Jackie Boyd of the Light and Life Church told Des Busteed during Premier's News Hour he doesn't understand why people would say things like that:
A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference
In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.
Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
