Rev. Irfan John, our Synod Enabler (Culturally Diverse Congregations) has been appointed First Ambassador of Cardiff City of Sanctuary. We are delighted to hear this and send Irfan our congratulations and best wishes.
On 5th June 2014 Cardiff became the seventh UK city to officially be recognised as a ‘City of Sanctuary’. To receive this accolade, Cardiff had to demonstrate that it is a city that welcomes new arrivals seeking a safe place to live after fleeing war or persecution. The Wales Synod along with many other groups and organisations have signed up to this and pledged to support new arrivals.
