Advent Appeal Focuses On Turkey And Finland

The Bishop’s annual Advent Appeal is launched today (Friday 23 November 2012) and he hopes that churches and congregational groups all across the Diocese.

It focuses on the continuing efforts of the Sudanese White Nile congregation in Finland to develop and maintain their community and worship activities.  It also highlights the need to help refugees who are flooding into Turkey where the churches are trying to help them.
