Unfortunately we have heard this morning that tonight's speaker is ill and so the meeting has been cancelled. We hope to be able to re-schedule after Easter.

"People Seeking Sanctuary"

The challenges facing refugees and how we can help them

8pm on 30 March and 6 April in TRM Church

  • 30 March: Ibtisam Alfarah and Anna Aitken (City of Sanctuary Sheffield)

  • 6 April: Casey Strine (University of Sheffield and Bishop’s Adviser for Inter-Faith Affairs)


The Ukraine crisis has highlighted the challenges facing refugees seeking sanctuary and raised new questions for us about how we can help them. In the first of these evening events (8pm on 30th March), guest speaker Dr Ibtisam Alfarah will share her inspirational story of life as a refugee. Her colleague Anna Aitken will then talk us through the practical things we can do to help those seeking sanctuary. In the second meeting (8pm on 6th April), Dr Casey Strine will share his own experiences of working with refugees and the impact it has had on his Christian faith. Attendance is free and open to anyone -- feel free to invite friends and family. No need to book.
