Our vision is for every refugee in the UK to be welcomed by their local church

Welcome Churches is being piloted with 10 churches this autumn. 

Our vision is for every refugee in the UK to be welcomed by their local church.

We already have lots of churches interested in being one of the first ever Welcome Churches! Applications are coming in fast so if your church is interested in being involved, get in touch today.

Your church is rich in resources and skills that make you a welcoming community!

No matter where your church is, or what your experience of welcoming refugees has been so far, Welcome Churches can better equip you to be good news for refugees.

Our training and resources and training practically equip churches in areas such as:

  • How to provide help and support to refugees arriving in your community
  • How to work with other local refugee agencies and the wider community
  • How to include refugees in every part of church life
