BANES council really need your help with an urgent situation to home an Afghan husband and wife.
He speaks very good English, having taught the subject in Afghanistan, whereas she does not. They have both been through biometric testing and are eligible to work in the UK now.
The council are looking for a one bed property, it needs to be a place that they can use a home for 12 months. with a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and lounge. They are keen to have a garden if possible. It could be anywhere in BANES but ideally Bath. They are being supported for the next three years through the Connecting Families Team in BANES and the council will be paying the rent initially. They have to move out of their current accommodation by the 12th Oct 2021 so as you can imagine we are now desperately looking for a property for them!

0St Swithin’s ‘SWAT’ (St. sWithins Assistance Taskforce) team
The plan is for Life Groups to provide the main focus for supporting one another through this difficult time, but situations may arise that are outside the ability of Life Groups to cover alone. To that end we are looking to set up a pool of volunteers (the SWAT team) who are able to provide help as and when needed. This could be at different levels, such as:
Becs Armstrong and Alastair Gibson have agreed to be the point of contact for the SWAT team so please could you email or phone them to let them know if you would like to be part of the team – indicating the sort of support you would be able to provide. Contact details are as follows:
Becs: 07779 102165 | firstname.lastname@example.org
Alastair: 07767 202830 | email@example.com

And although our publicly gathered rhythm needs to adapt to the season, we are still renewing our trust in God, committed to loving one another and passionate about serving the world around us.
