The next Interfaith Prayer Vigil takes place on Sunday 6 March 2022 at 3.00pm.
Churches and faith communities are standing together against Derwentside Immigration Centre (Hassockfield) and the detention of women seeking asylum. We meet outside the barrier of the centre and hold an interfaith prayer vigil.
Women have been moved into the Centre which is now England’s main IRC for women and will eventually detain 80 women who are seeking asylum. The prayer vigils will continue – both to pray for the women and to stand in solidarity with them.
The postcode for the centre on Corbridge Road, Medomsley is DH8 6QY. To avoid disruption to local residents, we ask you to park away from the site if you can. Do come and join us! If you are unable to join in person, please join in prayer from home at 3.00pm.
