We are all children of God (1 John 3:1) no matter where we are from. We are all children of God no matter how we got here. We love one another as God loves us (John 13: 34-35).

This Refugee Week 2022 we want to tell different stories. Stories of welcome.

Join us to hear the stories of our churches and parishes across London welcoming refugees, migrants and asylum seekers.

The aims of the event are:

  • To share and celebrate the stories how our London churches and parishes are welcoming asylum seekers, migrants and refugees from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Eritrea, Ukraine, Hong Kong and so many other countries.
  • To share a new infographic to help us understand current UK resettlement pathways, and how our churches and parishes are supporting asylum seekers, migrants and refugees within this system.
  • To be inspired by our speakers Bishop Paul McAleenan (Diocese of Westminster and Lead Bishop for Migrants and Refugees), Bishop Joanne Grenfell (Bishop of Stepney, Diocese of London), and the Bishop of Southwark, The Rt Revd Christopher Chessun

This event is hosted jointly by the Compassionate Communities Team (Diocese of London), the Diocese of Southwark and Caritas Westminster.
