The ongoing conflict in Ukraine is threatening the lives and livelihoods of civilians across the country, with over a million people already having fled their homes.
Christian Aid are working with partner organisations to offer assistance, and their website offers several ways you can help ranging from donations through prayer to writing to your elected representatives.
Conversation Club Leeds is looking for volunteers
Have you ever thought that you would like to help refugees and asylum seekers, but didn’t know how? If you like meeting new people and enjoy a chat, Conversation Club Leeds wants to hear from you. They’re a charity that provides a safe space for refugees and asylum seekers to socialise and practise speaking English, and they need volunteers for people to chat to and befriend for an hour or two at their twice-weekly meetings. You will need to have great people skills, lots of empathy and a good sense of humour, but you will get a lot in return!
If you’re interested, drop them an email at [email protected].

Thursdays in Lent, continuing 10 March at 7.30 pm
The Smeaton Room, Whitkirk Community Centre
This year’s Lent Course explores our lives and faith through C.S. Lewis’ classic book ‘The Screwtape Letters’. First published in 1941, this collection of letters from a senior devil to his nephew providing advice on leading his assigned human astray, is still witty, readable, and recognisable. Over six weeks we’re reading passages from the book alongside scripture, and discussing and learning together.
You do not need to have read the whole book beforehand, and the relevant extracts will be provided for you at each session. However, we recommend you do read it if you can, if for no other reason than it’s a fantastic book! It is still in print today and is also easy to find second hand.
Join us after the service for refreshments
You are warmly invited to join us after the service for refreshments in our Community Centre.
We recommend you wear a face covering whilst moving around the building if you are able.
