b.friend

Dawit is a 24 year old Eritrean refugee and Christian. He arrived in Bristol two months ago and got refugee status very quickly after arriving here. He has no contact with his family members back home and is very lonely. Dawit is trying to find permanent housing and is anxious to find his feet and integrate. He likes table tennis, action movies and would like to visit some museums.

Could you spare an hour and a half once a fortnight to befriend someone like Dawit and improve life in Bristol for an isolated asylum seeker or refugee? Sam Sayer is looking for new volunteers who would like to befriend someone from another culture and show God’s love practically to those on the margins. Befriending will involve listening, helping with English and spending time enjoying Bristol together. Befriending training runs for four consecutive Thursday evenings starting on 23rd February. On-going support and supervision is also given.

For more details please contact Sam via the church office.

There will be a Church collection for the work of b.friend on Sunday 4th March
