Churches working together in Louth to welcome refugees to the UK

ACT

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.
