In Support of Refugees – A Project in our former Manse
The Halifax Group of United Reformed Churches is putting a former manse to good use, rather than selling it or letting it to private tennants.
This is an exciting project that is providing service to vulnerable people, many of whom are continuing to suffer from the effects of persecution that has driven them to flee from their homeland, abandoning their livelihood and leaving behind their loved ones. It is a mission, inspired by the teaching of Jesus, the commandment to ‘Love Thy Neighbour’ so important to our Christian faith.
The manse will be a home to up to four refugees, a safe place that facilitates their transition from ‘seeker of asylum’ to ‘citizen’. There is also scope for accommodating occassional destitute assylum seekers.
