We're delighted to be returning to Jubilee Plus' conference: Churches that Change Communities this year. We have met so many great people at this conference who have gone on to make a huge impact in their own local community, will we see you there?
Working with refugees and asylum seekers often means helping people in very difficult situations and hearing traumatic, personal stories. How do we protect ourselves from burnout? How do we support refugees and asylum seekers who are struggling? 'Resilience Toolbox' will give you tools in self-care and debriefing others to ensure the emotional wellbeing of those involved in refugee ministry.
Do you have refugees and asylum seekers in your church or community?
Would you like to?
Welcome Churches and R2C2 are seeking to equip and resource the UK Church to welcome, support and include refugees and asylum seekers in our churches and our communities. With years of experience based in local churches and projects, we want to share what we have learnt and connect churches across the UK who share our heart and vision.
The evening will include:
1) Steps to building a refugee-welcoming church
2) Update on the refugee situation in the North West
3) Information, resources and tools to help you welcome refugees
4) Connecting with others who are working with refugees near you
No matter whether your church has lots of experience in welcoming refugees, or would just like to know where to begin, if you're based in the North West of England then this evening is for you!
