Refugee Week: Welcome Churches Resources
Refugee Week is happening from 20th to 26th June, with Refugee Sunday on 26th June. Welcome Churches have some great resources available to help your church get involved. This year they are celebrating the incredible contribution that churches are making to welcome refugees as well as the impact that refugees and people seeking asylum are having on the church community that they are joining.
Their Beyond the Welcome video shares the testimonies of some of the Welcome Network churches and looks at the incredible way they are changing lives. Welcome Churches are encouraging churches to show this on Refugee Sunday or during Refugee Week to encourage and inspire your church.
They have also produced a range of biblically-based children’s resources to help children understand the plight of refugees and what the Bible has to say about this tricky subject. During the week, they are also holding a prayer event as well as Trauma Awareness Training sessions.
