We have been celebrating the good news that Sameer, Raja and Mahmoud have all received “leave to remain” in the UK but now that Advent has arrived we have a different refugee family to think about.
Throughout Advent this knitted Holy Family and “friends” will be travelling around the Leeds area seeking refuge in the homes of anyone who cares to look after them for a night or two. This gives us a chance to think about what it means to be a refugee and also to reflect on those special refugees of 2000 years ago.
Today the Guardian published a series of articles about welcoming refugees – and TRJFP@AH was included!

This was All Hallows last night as we rehearsed and recorded the Unofficial Anthem for #TeamRefugees “The World Is Our Song” written and led by Beccy Owen. You can download the song from Beccy’s Bandcamp site and all profits go to PAFRAS (Positive Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers)
After one last joyful evening and morning together, we said a sad farewell to our guests, praised God for a GOOD week, and went off to rest 🙂
This morning’s Eucharist was a moving symbol of the reality we’ve been sharing all week – the kingdom of heaven is a great big party! And also a reminder that the party isn’t complete until love joy and justice ‘kiss’ and fill the earth…
These photos give a little glimpse of the wonderful welcome joy and generosity (and amazing FOOD!) that Leeds Grand Mosque shared with us last night. Praise God and thanks be to all of these dear brothers and sisters 🙂
What are we trying to prove with all these night shelter shenanigans??
Thanks be to God for another brilliant evening of meeting and eating. Super tasty pasta carbonara thanks to Lorea and Chris, and homemade choc-chip cookies courtesy of Sheraz and Raadhiyah. Mostly Raadhiyah 🙂
Another cheery evening of food and fun and friendship-building! Big thanks to Janet from St Michael’s Headingley who cooked us supper, to Sally from Leeds Vineyard Church for serving up and washing up supper, and to Simon from Hyde Park Methodist Church who did the overnight shift…
Praise God for another wonderful evening- full of new friends, tasty curry, stories and conversations, card tricks and games (SPOONS!) and lots of laughs 🙂
