Building a Refugee-Welcoming Church: BLACKBURN and PRESTON

Do you have refugees and asylum seekers in your church or community?

Would you like to?

Welcome Churches 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 Blackburn and Preston and the Lancashire Sanctuary Homes Project

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 Blackburn or Preston then this evening is for you!
