What would it look like for every refugee in Edinburgh and Glasgow to receive a welcome from the local Church? Many Churches in these cities have been involved in welcoming refugees but there is still more we can do!
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. As more churches respond to this biblical mandate, Welcome Churches are building a Welcome Network of churches around the UK who are committed to welcoming and including refugees and asylum seekers in their communities. Your church has a part to play in this! Come along and find out more about:
- The refugee situation in Glasgow
- Steps to building a refugee-welcoming church
- Information, resources and tools to help you welcome and reach out refugees
- 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 Edinburgh or Glasgow then these events are for you!
