The Dean and Chapter of Ely Cathedral wholeheartedly endorse the statement issued by the Bishop of Ely and the Bishop of Huntingdon in support of Syrian Refugees.

Bishops' Statement:

"It's great to see local people acting together to help welcome, house and support refugees arriving in this country from the Middle East. Bishop Stephen and I in the Diocese of Ely (covering Cambridgeshire and West Norfolk) have written to all our churches encouraging them to act wherever they can. Our key messages are:

(1) Act in partnership.

(2) Offer sustainable rentals.

(3) Help with emergency needs.

(4) Go on working as communities to help us all integrate and thrive.

(5) Consider fostering.

(6) Pray."
