On the afternoon of Sunday 17th October our Church hall provided hospitality for 8 “New Scots” families, from Syria, Iraq and The Sudan. Some families have been in Edinburgh for as long 3 years, but others have only arrived in the last month or so, still feeling very challenged by everything, not least the language. The Weekend Club organized a wonderful afternoon of kite making, games and provided pizza, fruit, refreshments for 18 adults and around 30 children. 5 volunteers from St. Cuthberts’ helped to ensure the families were offered hospitality and friendship. We hope to be involved in future events and looking for others to join us in making our Church a place of welcome and joy.
