The London Churches Refugee Network

London Churches Refugee Network brings together Christians working with refugees and asylum seekers in London. We are working together with  the  London Churches Refugee Hardship Fund   and  the Churches Together in Britain and Ireland Churches Refugee Network.

Vision, Mission and Values Statement
The London Churches Refugee Network affirms its purpose of supporting refugees, asylum seekers and other vulnerable migrants. In cooperation with London’s Churches, and with other community groups and agencies, we work to ensure that migrants can gain the security to achieve their aspirations for themselves and for their families while in the UK and in London in particular.
Our vision is of a society in which communities can enable all its members to become integrated so as to live full private and social lives, citizens and non-citizens together, and in which no one, no family nor group is alienated on account of their country of origin.
Our mission is to support and resource London’s Churches in responding to migrants’ needs for welcome and reassurance. In partnership with the Churches and with other organisations who share our values we aim to enable and empower migrants of every nationality, ethnic group, faith and culture to determine their own position and participation in society.
Our values are centred on the dignity of each person as guided by the Church’s teaching about God’s love for all people and the Bible’s affirmation of migration, welcome to the stranger and justice for the vulnerable.

What We Do
Our work includes the following:
o Regular meetings of the Network to inform and resource London Churches on issues affecting refugees, asylum seekers and other vulnerable migrants. We do this both by cooperating with other organisations who support our mission and values, and through hearing the voices of refugees, asylum seekers and migrants;
o Regular communications with Churches to resource them in their support of refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants;
o Encouraging Church institutions and leaders to speak and act in support of refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants
