Weekly News Letter - 23rd August 2020

St James



A Very Warm Welcome to Everyone


Sudan Emergency Appeal
Bishop Nick writes:  "We have been linked with Sudan for around forty years. So, I am launching an emergency appeal right cross the Diocese of Leeds to support our brothers and sisters there. We are asking, on behalf of Archbishop Ezekiel, for funds for emergency food and supplies for those across the country who rely on the church for support or survival. The need is urgent and is increasing in severity:

  • More than 9.6 million people are in need of urgent help with food – that is one in four of the population.
  • The inflation rate has surged to 136% in June alone. This includes the price of food basics such as bread, grains and cooking oil, as well as water, fuel and cooking gas."

I hope that you will be able to support this appeal.
