Equipping the church to support refugees & asylum seekers

We know many parishes are journeying with members of their congregation and community who have refugee or asylum seeking status; our prayer is that we can bless, equip and encourage you on that holy journey.

There is a huge amount that the church can, and is doing, to reach out compassionately to “welcome the stranger”- from advice and legal support, to community sponsorship and hosting refugees in our home.
