Following on from the success of previous years, the Diocese is once again running its Advent Justice Appeal to help support its work around asylum seekers and refugees.
Bishop Trevor says: “The Christmas story offers a vivid reminder of why our concern for refugees and those seeking asylum should not waiver, revealing as it does the God given grace and dignity found in each and every one of us.”
What will the money be used for? Funds raised in 2017 will go to assist the following areas:
- Refugee Officer: To continue the work of the Refugee Officer, as she focuses on assisting churches keen to support refugee families through various Government schemes
- Calais post: To help establish the much prayed
for Calais post, which will support those engaging with the many migrants still present in Northern France.
- Winter Night Shelters: Some of the funds will also be distributed to the Kent Churches Winter Night Shelter Network
