The church is the most prominent, elaborate and luxurious structure I have experienced whilst spending time in the Calais refugee camp, the ‘Jungle’.

The workmanship put into this labour of love shows skill and determination, traits many of the men inside the camp have in abundance.

They also have compassion and understanding for each other. Brothers from all corners of the world come to pray alongside each other, some on small mats under the wooden roof next to this church, soon to become a mosque.
