Charis Update

“I am delighted that progress is being made by Charis, the Trust set up by St Mary’s, Vineyard Fellowship and Creech Baptist Church to respond to the Syrian refugee crisis. The government pledged that 20,000 vulnerable Syrian refugees would be found new homes in the UK and we hope that the churches in Taunton, working together, will bring a family over to resettle later on this year. The refugees that will come over are not economic migrants. They will have arrived at a refugee camp traumatised from war-torn Syria and will have come with problems that the refugee camp is not equipped to cope with; e.g. kidney dialysis. Many of the refugees will resettle here for a short while but their heart is in their homeland and they will want to return. Our aim is to show Christian compassion and love to these unfortunate, displaced, people. Charis is holding a public meeting at St Mary Magdalene on Wednesday 22nd June at 7.30pm. Please come along if you can.”

Rod Corke, Vicar
