Dear God...
“Hardly anyone can ever find God because God is right at the end of your mind after all the background thoughts are gone.”

St Lukes Holbeck
ESOL* and Children's Group
*English for Speakers of Other Languages
St Luke's Church are working with asylum seeker and refugee families in Holbeck and Beeston which is an inner-city area in South Leeds.

The project teaches English to adults which is embedded in “getting to know and make relationships with the local community” and also sign posts people to other organisations who are able to assist them and go out to events.

The proejct incliudes the provision of fun activities for the children of parents who are learning with us.

We feel that this is important as children so often have better English than their parents and by necessity become their parents’ helpers as the family tries to navigate their way through a system in a new language.
