Welcome Churches writes: “Following the success of our first ‘Churches Welcoming Refugees’ day in March, we are delighted to be holding our next day in LONDON on 12th October.
God is at work amongst the people seeking refuge in the UK! As the Church, we need to be ready to respond to the practical and spiritual needs of the people arriving in our communities.
Join with other churches from across the UK and be inspired, equipped and resourced to grow your work with refugees and asylum seekers.
Seminars on the day will focus on:
- Discipleship hub – Discipling people from a refugee background
- Integration hub – How to equip ordinary church members to be welcoming to refugees
- Care hub – Working with traumatised refugees using the Life Transitions Course
- Legal hub – Understanding the UK asylum system
- Discipleship hub – Making disciples who make disciples. Simple replicable tools to use among refugees
- Integration hub – Helping refugees find a place to belong in the UK Church
- Care hub – Caring for ourselves and others working with refugees
- Legal hub – Helping Christian Converts with their asylum claims
We will also have lunchtime table talks on different topics where we will be inviting you to share your experience of welcoming refugees so far.”
