‘Between Monsters, observations from the civil war in Syria 1st to 7th September 2016’ - Illustrated Talk

The London branch of the Fellowship of St Alban and St Sergius is having its Autumn Meeting on Thursday 27th October 2016, at 7.30 pm at St James’s Church, Sussex Gardens (Paddington) W2, near Lancaster Gate tube station. At this event there will be Eucharist (at 6.30 pm) followed by light refreshments and a talk, entitled: ‘Between Monsters, observations from the civil war in Syria 1st to 7th September 2016.’ This will be an illustrated talk by Jo Simister, of Living Stones of the Holy Land Trust.


The observers were a group of seven who had been invited by the Armenian Archbishop of Damascus, the Chaldean Catholic Bishop of Aleppo, the President of the Armenian Evangelical Church in Syria and the Grand Mufti of Syria. The group went to Syria to listen, learn and meet as many people as possible; to express their commitment to impartiality and solidarity with those who are suffering regardless of faith, culture or politics; to hear from religious and political leaders and internally displaced people; and to visit different religious communities and experience their placed of worship.[1]
