Welcome Churches launch the Welcome Network

Welcome Churches would like to invite you to join the Welcome Network!

Refugees and asylum seekers are a very transient people group. Often, through no choice of their own, they are required to move around the UK at short notice. This means that they can arrive in a new place feeling isolated, and being unfamiliar with their new surroundings. When they move they often want to find another church community quickly, who can support their practical and spiritual needs.

That is why Welcome Churches is building a Welcome Network of churches across the UK who are committed to welcoming and being family for refugees. They are creating a simple-to-use web platform and national referral system for churches across the UK. This will help refugees, churches and other organisations identify churches who are committed and equipped to welcome refugees.

To find out more and begin the application process, please visit welcomechurches.org/network. A member of the Welcome Churches team will then be in touch to discuss the next steps.
