Description

Housing and Homelessness: A Challenge to Faith and Society'.

There has been a dramatic rise in homelessness across our region, more living on the streets and even more who are relying on friends and relatives as they cannot afford or access their own home. Housing, and the provision of it, is a crisis in our country. The day is an opportunity to come together, discuss the issues in the region and wider and explore some possible ways forward and what we, faith communities, can do together.

An Ecumenical day held at Cuthbert's House, the Diocesan Offices for the Anglican Diocese of Durham, on Saturday 16 June from 10.00am - 4.00pm, coffee and tea available from 9.30am. The day will feature Fr. Peter McVerry S.J., an Irish Jesuit who was has campaigned on housing issues in Dublin for the past 40 years. He has set up the Peter McVerry Trust 'Opening Doors to Homeless People'. Visit the website. We will be joined by others who are providing support to those with housing issues in our region so we can hear from them and each other

Bring your own lunch, refreshments provided

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is lots of parking at Cuthbert House, directions are below

Travelling from the north on the A167 to Neville’s Cross traffic lights (passing Johnston school on your left hand side). When you reach Neville’s Cross lights, turn right onto the A690 and go down the bank towards Langley Moor. Once at the bottom of the bank there’s a mini roundabout – go straight over. You’ll see the Stonebridge Inn on your left hand side and there’s a slip road off to the left at this point – take that slip road and Cuthbert House is a little way along on your right hand side.
