Interfaith Service to mark the end of Refugee Week

On 23rd June 2024 York Unitarians once again hosted their annual Interfaith Service to mark the end of Refugee Week. The Refugee Council had this year selected the theme of OUR HOME for the week and so our service had the same theme. It included references as to how home is viewed and held as important to all the different faiths and also how by the organisations within the community working together we can make a real difference and off a welcome to those arriving in York when they have had to leave their own home behind and are hoping to create a new one for their families here in our city. The photo shows Dee Boyle, York Unitarian who led the service, Avtar Matharu, Chairperson of York Interfaith Group, Tina Funnel, one of the Trustees from York City of Sanctuary, Angie Creswick from Refugee Action York and Kadiatu Dawo from The Refugee Council UK who is based in Leeds. All made contributions to the service by given short talks about the work that they do. Following the service we had a lovely shared vegetarian lunch together and continued our chats and building new relationships and friendships.
