Fr Malcolm Bradshaw addresses a General Synod fringe meeting on the refugee crisis

On Wednesday morning Us (formerly USPG) held a fringe meeting for the General Synod delegates, over breakfast. It was a time to present something of the reality of the refugee situation in the Diocese in Europe and the response that Us is assisting us to make. Our own Fr Malcolm Bradshaw, Senior Chaplain in Athens, was on hand and gave an passionate and moving account of the experience of the refugees in Greece. It is an excellent summary of this complex situation. A video of his presentation is here.

According to Us, there was standing room only at the event and all those present will now spread the word even wider of our Diocese's engagement with this issue.
