Responding to the ​​Refugee ​Crisis

RefugeePeaceWe are working continually with the county and borough councils, charities and other key stakeholders to help refugees currently displaced by conflict and persecution.

Thank you for your continued time, enthusiasm and compassion to helping all refugees. Please continue to hold them in your prayers.

  • For ideas on how you and your parish can respond, see the Responding with PEACE page, which includes information on how to donate money, and charities that have collections to which you can donate clothing and aid items.

Current needs

  • Private accommodation - two- or three-bedroom properties anywhere in the diocese, but especially in the WAVERLEY and MOLE VALLEY areas.
  • Garden tools to help families grow some fruit and vegetables. They need: spades, long handled forks, small forks, hoes, trowels, 75-litre rainbow trugs, secateurs

Please contact Diane Peters if you can supply any of these items.
