Bishop of Derby's Harvest Appeal 2017

The Edwardes College School Multi-Faith Education

Parachinar in Northern Pakistan is in a tribal area of high radicalisation with many refugees as it lies only twenty-five miles from the Afghan border. The people have suffered greatly because of terrorism and sectarian clashes and they need to experience healing and to discover a better way of living together harmoniously based on understanding and tolerance rather than fear and prejudice.

After eight years of negotiation with the government, Bishop Humphrey has been given a disused building and permission to open the first Church School in the area on the understanding that Muslims and Christians, boys and girls will be educated together. This timely project will help prevent further radicalisation and extremism and give children in the area hope and the possibility of a different future. 

Through your donations and support, Muslim and Christian children can build a future for themselves free from radicalisation. 

Talking about the appeal, Bishop Alastair said: "This year's Harvest Appeal offers a timely opportunity for us to bear witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to show solidarity with the Anglican Church in Pakistan. Please support it generously - so that God's grace can be a blessing through our commitment."
