Middle East B.friend training - July

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 evening will go through all the practical guidelines for befriending as well as some cultural and language tips for befriending Arabic speakers here in Bristol.

Monday 22nd July, 7pm - 9.30pm, at 88 Feeder Road, St Phillips, BS2 0TH. Parking available.

Bethlehem Olive Harvest - Oct 12th-20th 2019

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 2019 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!
