HONG KONG READY CHURCH
Over the years Revs have on several occasions rolled up our sleeves welcoming and helping those seeking asylum or arriving in our nation with refugee status. In recent years Revelation was on the front line of the governments ‘Syrian Vulnerable Person relocation Programme’ in our district. We have now joined hundreds of churches in the UK getting ready to ‘Welcome’ newly-arrived Hong Kongers to the UK. At least 130,000 people are expected to migrate to the UK from Hong Kong this year alone following the destabilising events in Hong Kong of the last couple of years. We want to be ready to play our part as a church family helping people arrive with a really warm welcome and to settle into the city.
By signing up to be a Hong Kong Ready Church we are:
1. Committing as a church to welcoming Christians from Hong Kong who are looking for a congregation to join.
2. Offering to help new arrivals who need help settling in by training up members of the church to be welcomers.
Bekah Robinson is leading our response.
