Middle East Befriending training - April

Middle East Befriending training - April

Do you have a couple of hours a week to give to befriend a refugee family or individual who has recently arrived from the Middle East to Bristol? Could you give them a warm welcome to our city, help them get to know their local community, and support them in learning English? (And maybe learn some Arabic along the way?) This training and information session will go through all the practical guidelines for befriending as well as some cultural and language tips for befriending Arabic speakers here in Bristol.

We are still in need of befrienders to support with English learning virtually, and helping refugee families get to know local people.

Wednesday 1st April, 7-9.30pm. This session will be delivered online via 'Zoom' so please email me directly to receive an invite to attend.

Bethlehem Olive Harvest - Oct 2020

Please note - this event was previously advertised for 2019 but has been postponed until 2020.

Visit the Holy Land. Meet the People. Learn from the Peacemakers. Contribute in a practical way.

Working in partnership with the Holy Land Trust in Bethlehem, Bridges is again offering the chance for people from the UK to spend a week in October 2020 helping Palestinian farmers to harvest their olives. This is a great way to build awareness of the challenges that people living in the Holy Land face, and to contribute in a simple but practical way towards an important part of their way of life.

Experience climbing to the top of an ancient olive tree to pick the last of the olives, explore some of the sights of the Holy Land, savour some wonderful Middle eastern food, and make new friends as you share this wonderful experience together!
