Supporting Refugees in the Diocese of Leicester
Hear from three different speakers about our call as Christians to support refugees and asylum seekers and the various ways we can answer it
About this Event

Join us for a one-hour webinar, chaired by Bishop Saju, as part of our Lent Appeal in support of Baca, a charity with a base in Loughborough which supports young refugees who arrive in the UK without any family.

You'll have a chance to hear, and ask questions of, our speakers who have supported refugees and asylum seekers in various ways across the Diocese including:

  • Jimmy Zachariah, CEO of Baca
  • Revd Claire Goode, who led a quilting retreat at Launde Abbey to create a quilt in the colours of the Ukrainian flag, which was sold to raise money for Ukrainian refugees and which now hangs in the Ukrainian Club Kalyna in Leicester.
  • Kat Gibson, Intercultural Pioneer Minister at Roots IWC, who leads a team of volunteers providing support for asylum-seekers and refugees living in Leicester

No matter what your gifting, your role or your context, we hope you'll leave inspired and with a sense of how God might be calling you to support refugees and asylum-seekers in our communities and beyond.
