We have all been shocked at the events in Afghanistan and we can feel powerless and hopeless.

Here are some things we can do:

  • Pray

  • Follow David on his latest cycling tour and sponsor him by donating to Herts Welcomes Refugees

  • There are some very practical suggestions here

  • Write to our MP, Grant Shapps. You could use this site to do this easily

  • You may have more ideas about what we can do to help. If so, please drop us an email at so we can include it on our site.

We prayed this together at our vigil on 21st August:

May God bless me with discomfort at easy answers and half-truths so that I may live a life of truth.

May God bless me with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that I may work for freedom and peace.

May God bless me with tears to shed for those who suffer pain, rejection, hunger and war, so that I may reach out my hand to comfort them and to turn their pain to joy.

And may God bless me with enough foolishness to believe that I can make a difference in the world, so that I can do what others claim cannot be done: to bring justice and kindness to all our children and the poor.
