Where the Miracles Begin
Bringing Life to our City
It is our belief that the church should be at the forefront of tackling the poverty that exists on our doorstep. That is why so much of the social justice work done in this country emanates from local churches. In all of our ‘Compassion’ projects, our aim is not to ‘get people to come along to church’ and neither is it to ‘make people into Christians’. Our aim is simply to love and support people at their point of need.
Jesus himself experienced first-hand what it is like to be a refugee. Homeless, hungry & helpless, refugees have left all their possessions, their home and culture behind them. Very often they find themselves unable to put down roots, unable to build a future for themselves or their family, and imprisoned by their situation. There are more refugees today than after the Second World War. The Bible shows us again and again that God calls His people to feed the hungry, help the homeless, stand up for those who are vulnerable, and to love refugees.
