Jesus Was a Refugee


(Asylum Seekers collection next Sun. Unwanted Christmas toiletries  gifts  together with usual donations much appreciated).


The North East project helps over 400 asylum seekers by giving them a bag of essential weekly food items. Those refused leave to stay are also given £25 per month from voluntary donations. This is necessary because, once leave to stay is refused, they lose their homes and all Government funding. They effectively are destitute. The project has been running nearly sixteen years.

The aim is to welcome and care for people from all over the world who arrive on our doorstep seeking asylum.

We thank each parish for helping to carry on feeding those who are hungry, whether by food, or cash donations.

We look on these collections as our monthly miracle.  

J. Dowling Manager.



Wishing you A Holy and Peaceful Christmas
