I came across this song In the bleak midwinter sung by Cathy Burton, whilst preparing for a carol service. I thought it was beautiful and very appropriate, given the refugee crisis we are in.
This reworked version of In the Bleak Midwinter, with new lyrics written by Krish and Miriam Kandiah and recorded by Cathy Burton, a singer/songwriter from Chichester, focuses on the needs of these refugee children and reminds us of an often overlooked aspect of the Christmas story: the Jesus was a child refugee.It is part of Homeforgood's campaign to find home for Syrian refugee children.
We will be featuring the song as part of our International Carol Service at Christchurch Woking on Saturday 19th December at 7pm. The theme is 'Jesus the refugee' and we will be supporting a programme in Lebanon working with Syrian Refugees (more on that another time).
