Lobbying those in positions of influence to seek solutions to the underlying crisis and to respond with charity to those in need.
Examples so far include…
- Letters written to the Prime Minister and Home Office at Christmas 2016 followed by meetings with local politician's in 2017.
- 200 for 200 Vigil at St James which gathered support of 200 pledges from individuals to practically support the 200 refugees expected to be settled in Lincolnshire.
- Partnering with local and national organisations who are working to improve the lives of and welcome refugees to the UK.
- Partnership between the churches/schools in Louth and Israel-Palestine/Jordan, starting with a partnership between St Michael’s School in Louth and the Arab Episcopal School in Irbid.
"Like St. Michael’s, the AES has firm school values: Respect, Truth, Love, Giving, Honesty & Peace. This is an exciting (partnership) opportunity for our school and one which, over the coming years, we could all benefit from."
Mr Paul Fox, Headteacher, St Michaels School
