Mayor and Mayoress to visit photo exhibition

‘Uprooted Voices’

St Peter’s Church, Balsall Common is hosting an evening service on Sunday 6 May at 6 pm to which all the local churches have been invited. Also attending are the Mayor of Solihull, Councillor Stuart Davis and the Mayoress, Mrs Sarah Walker.

The service will be taken by Revd Peter Thomas, Vicar of the Parish. Speaking at the service will be John Cooper, Christian Aid Regional Coordinator for Coventry, Warwickshire and Solihull.

There will also be a Christian Aid photo exhibition in St Peter’s Church which highlights the position of displaced people from Nigeria, Kenya and Iraq. The reasons for their displacement are many: conflict, flooding, drought, fear. Torn from their homes, their families and their communities, displaced people are among the most vulnerable to poverty and exploitation in the world. Christian Aid says,’ The exhibition aims to encourage people to join Christian Aid’s new campaign to ensure the rights of internally displaced people are recognised by the international community and their own governments.’

The service is organised by Churches Together in Balsall and Berkswell (CTBB) and Claire Laland, Secretary of CTBB says, ‘We are delighted to welcome the Mayor and Mayoress of Solihull to St Peter’s Church and to host the photo exhibition Uprooted Voices. We know that many of the world’s displaced people remain hidden or ignored and this seems a good way to draw attention to them. This is one of many events organised under the umbrella of CTBB and we are always pleased to work with our friends in all the churches.’
