Event Details


The aim of the day is to resource those appointed within the churches and church-related charities to welcome and support forced migrants - but others who wish to be with us are of course welcome.  This is a day for getting the latest information, for sharing best practice, for prayer and for networking. We have chosen to meet in Coventry because it is central within the UK and because it is noted for its ministry of reconciliation.
