Revd Ellen Loudon is asking anyone from our diocese or Church of England who works with displaced people – asylum seekers, refugees or anybody who’s away from their home country, to share their experience at a summit on Thursday, April 27, 2017 at Liverpool Cathedral.
The summit, which is Liverpool Diocese’s response to helping worshipping communities support displaced people, is an opportunity to learn from each other. It’s is free to join the summit. If you’re supporting someone who’s displaced in your church, school, chaplaincy or fresh expression (including new congregations) for instance, your ideas about how should we welcome displaced people to worshipping communities, identify and ensure their needs are met will be discussed. You’ll also be looking at how across the diocese, we support displaced people who do not share our Christian faith, in the wider community.
Revd Ellen Loudon said:
“Bring your experiences of working with people in your congregation from other parts of the world. Whether you’re worshipping with or simply spending time with people, who are displaced from their home environment, please come along and share your stories. Your input is vital for creating good missional thinking and practice. Please book your place
and come along.”
