From 29th-30th November 2016, Dr. Fergus O'Ferrall , Lay Leader of the Methodist Church in Ireland will be in Brussels at the invitation of the European Commission to participate in Forum considering the important topic of "Children and Migration. The urgency generated by this topic has come centre stage with the demolition of "The Jungle" camp at Calais.
Dr. O'Ferrall who has written and spoken on this issue says " My focus at the Forum will be on the"moral responsibility"we have to children who are unaccompanied in the European Community.
The Methodist Lay Leader is also of the opinion that there is a need to organise a new Government Agency to address what will be a long term challenge.
