Ways of Caring for ourselves and others.

Date: Sunday April 8

Time: 12.45 PM TO 2.45 PM

Venue: HULL UNITARIAN CHURCH, Park St, Hull.

Please RSVP by April 1, especially if you would like to share lunch.

Supporting ‘Hull City of Sanctuary’

Hull Unitarians are pleased to support  the Hull City of Sanctuary initiative

Hull City of Sanctuary is a new initiative to make Hull a recognised place of welcome and safety for people in need of sanctuary. A “sanctuary” is a safe place, where people can live without the threat of violence or death, which was the reason they fled from their own country. Britain has a long and honourable history of giving sanctuary to refugees, for many centuries.

As the UN Convention puts it, refugees are “outside their own country owing to a well founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion”.
