Support for refugees offered at prayer service in Shepton Mallet
A Women’s World Day of Prayer service is taking place on Friday, March 1, in St Paul’s School Hall, Paul Street, Shepton Mallet from 3.15pm.
The theme is “I was a stranger and you welcomed me”. The service comes from France which, like other European countries, receives many asylum requests. In 2011, 51,900 people applied for asylum in France. The presence of these people in the country both enriches the culture and can cause social difficulties. Behind each request, each statistic, is the story of a life. Some of those stories will be shared in the service.
Liz Roberts is coming to speak from Refugee Action Bristol, where she is involved with clients who are legal refugees and asylum seekers.
The children will give a presentation at 3.15pm, French food will be served and all are welcome. The service itself begins at 4pm. Car parking available at the back of the school.
