The Byron Syrian Refugee Support Team was created in early October 2015 to assist in bringing more Syrian families to London. We at Byron had already been successful in helping two families from Syria settle in London in the Spring of 2015. Thanks to the generous donations from members of Metropolitan United Church, First St. Andrews United Church and many private individuals the Byron Syrian Refugee Support Team believed that it had the resources to be able to begin the process of bringing three more families to London.
At a special Byron Congregational Meeting on November 22, 2015 our church unanimously approved the Support Team plan.
At this time, one application has been sent to the United Church of Canada who is working as the Sponsorship Agreement Holder. We are hopeful that this application will soon make it's way to Citizenship and Immigration Canada in Winnipeg. From there the application will go to Beirut Lebanon where this family is waiting.
The other two family applications are being finalized by our Team members this week. These Team members having been working closely with the family's London relatives to ensure that all of the information necessary to complete the Government of Canada documents is correct. We hope to have these applications sent to the United Church of Canada by December 7,2015. From there the applications will go to the CIC in Winnipeg and then on to Beirut Lebanon.
We are hopeful that the application process will proceed smoothly. However we are aware that it may take some time to move through Government channels. We at the Byron Syrian Refugee Support Team will keep you up to date as this process continues. Thank you once again for your prayerful support.

As a New Year is upon us, what a better time to bring together two incredible Ministries ! Children’s Ministry and Music Ministry have launched Sunday School through the Arts. Children in Grades 1-6 can learn and explore Bible stories in a new and exciting format. Every Sunday students will explore a new lesson by attending a different workshop each week. In every workshop, your child will open the Bible and dig into the story in lively, age-appropriate ways. Rotating Workshops include: Art, Skills and Games, Cooking, Creative Drama, Crafts, Music, and Dance. For more information email Liam Maharaj, Director of Christian Education, at email@example.com
