Asylum Seekers and Refugees

Our village is currently hosting approximately 600 asylum seekers and refugees who are temporarily residing at our local hotels. Many of these individuals and families will eventually be processed and located in other forms of accommodation. St John’s Church is currently liaising with other service providers to ascertain how to add value to the provision of support that is needed. The presence of asylum seekers and refugees will have an impact on our community and we seek to acknowledge them, welcome their presence, and ease their integration into our village. 

We are currently looking at different ways of meaningful social engagements. If you would like to get involved, or want to support or perhaps would like to donate to this work, you can do one of the following:

(1) For any gift in kind such as clothing please contact Sussex Aid for Refugees [click here] they will be able to inform you about the latest requests and needs for our local Asylum Seekers and Refugees


(2) If you would like to volunteer in any future projects to support Asylum Seekers and Refugees than contact our church office on 01342 712063
