There are about 100,000 Chinese Students from the Peoples' Repubic of China studying in the universities of the UK. We wish to be in touch with them but only have limited resources.
We invite Chaplaincies to consider an outreach to these students who are very open. We can offer limited support forthis initiative.
We also invite local parishes to offer a welcome to these students. Very often they live very simple lives on small allowances. They are very family orientated and would welcome an invitation to visit a family home here in the UK.
The celebration of the Lunar New Year is a very good time to offer freindship and hospitality and therby build bonds across the world.
