Rt Revd Graham Tomlin
“The refugee crisis is one of the great challenges of our age, and will continue to be so over the coming years. But with challenges come opportunities -This gives us a particular opportunity to express in practical terms the love of God in Christ, who welcomes us strangers into fellowship with him. I would encourage Christians in the Kensington Area to pray for those who are desperately seeking a home and shelter as they flee from the turmoil of Syria and the Middle East, and, while being aware that it is not always possible, would encourage those who have property which can be let out, to consider making such accommodation available to incoming refugees.”
With very best wishes +Graham
