Seeking Refuge

Seeking Refuge

At Open Doors we were given the last available copy of Seeking Refuge, an amazing collection of personal stories from some of the many who come to the UK in search of asylum and found themselves in the city of Hull.

The stories were gathered together by David Turner, a volunteer with Open Doors, a project based at Princes Avenue Methodist Church set up in 2000 to welcome asylum seekers and refugees dispersed to Hull.

The introduction to the collection of 17 stories explains the need for a booklet of this kind: “It’s our hope that by reading the stories of just a few of  [those who have come seeking refuge] the people who live in and around Hull, which has now become a city of sanctuary, will come to see things differently.”
