“This year from Friday 4 November to Saturday 5 November we are holding a special conference in Derby, to celebrate the impact of refugees in local churches across the UK. The Welcome Conference is also a place for churches to have a fresh conversation about the role of the Church in refugee integration in the UK. There will be seminars and workshops, resources and information, and an opportunity to come along as churches with refugees and asylum seekers in your church.
For refugees and those seeking asylum who are followers of Jesus, the Welcome Conference is a unique opportunity for refugees and people seeking asylum to come together, safely share their experiences, encourage one another and build connections and community.
For churches, the Welcome Conference is an opportunity for churches to hear first-hand the stories and experiences of Christian refugees arriving in the UK in order to better understand and be better equipped to provide support and welcome.
More information will be shared with you in due time, including how to register. For now, make sure to save the date!”
