An inaugural committee meeting will be held on 13th October.
For churches interested in considering further how they can offer support to refugees and asylum seekers, the following links provide a lot of useful ideas and resources:
Church of Sanctuary – an initiative inspired by Rev Inderjit Bhogal, who preached at our recent circuit EDI service.
Welcome Churches – will put refugees seeking to be connected with a local church in contact with churches who would like to offer a welcome. Churches can join their welcome network, and the site also provides a wealth of resources to support churches
The Methodist Church – also provides a number of practical ways for churches to respond to the Afghan crisis in particular.
