Love Without Limits Gathering
Saturday, 18 June
12:00 - 17:00
By Faith in Community Scotland
About the event:
A Gathering to explore and develop the faithful welcome offered to asylum seekers and refugees. Faith communities in Scotland are places of hope, compassion and skill and play a central role in the lives of many refugees and asylum seekers.
How can we be inspired to build on resources and equip ourselves to support those seeking sanctuary in Scotland to flourish in their new community?
In a safe and open space, we will engage in discussion and hear the stories of refugees and those seeking asylum. As well as hearing about innovative and effective projects, we will learn of smaller practical activities that can be life-changing.
To this gathering we invite:
- Refugees and those with lived experience of seeking asylum and connecting with faith groups (We will refund travel expenses)
- Members of all faith groups who already engage in work to support asylum seekers
- Members of all faith groups who wish to develop a ministry with asylum seekers and refugees or who simply wish to deepen their understanding of the lived experience of refugees and asylum seekers
We hope to learn from those with lived experience, learn from the outstanding work already taking place and commit to future action recalling the love that drives us and our mutual call to welcome the stranger.
Taking account of our different situations, we will decide how to move forward in our work so that refugees and asylum seekers may be supported to thrive in our communities.
