Church of St. Stephen in-the-Fields says
Since January, a small group has been working on a refugee sponsorship, raising funds and communicating with the Anglican-United Refugee Alliance (AURA). There have recently been some exciting developments, which mean we need to build the group's membership and capacity. First, and most important, we have been matched with a refugee case -- a single individual from Iran, who will be arriving sometime in the next three to six weeks. Supporting this person through arrival and resettlement will be a task which will require as many supportive volunteers as possible. Though we do not yet know much about this case, we will have some additional information to present at the meeting.

Second, we remain on AURA's list for a potential family sponsorship, which would not happen before 2017 (in our case, because we are already settling one individual, probably late in 2017). This will require additional resources, so we need to discuss what we need in regards to fundraising, volunteer efforts, and organizational structure, to make this possible. If you are interested in being involved in any way, or just want more information, please come to this meeting!
