Church Response For Refugees

Come and hear Tania Bright, Executive Director of Church Response For Refugees.

Ask the question, can we welcome and support refugees in Huntingdon and Godmanchester?

Six years of brutal civil war in Syria, coupled with atrocities committed by ISIS across the Middle East, have created one of the greatest human crises in the world today.

  • Almost 500,000 Syrian people have died
  • Some 11 million – nearly half the population – have fled their homes
  • Almost 5 million are in vast camps in neighbouring countries

The UK Government is committed to resettling 23,000 refugees in the UK and launched the Community Sponsorship scheme. This is an opportunity for churches and other faith-based organisations to be salt and light – to take on the challenging but rewarding role of offering hospitality to the stranger.

Church Response For Refugees is a movement of individuals, churches and communities, concerned about the plight of refugees arriving in the UK, coming together to use our voices, influence and resources to actively welcome and support refugees.

Tania has been a keynote speaker and seminar contributor at Spring Harvest, New Wine, CVM’s The Gathering, AGLOW networks, and churches and groups of all persuasions across the UK.

As a foster carer and with two adopted babies, Tania has a beautiful new perspective on what ‘family’ means. Tania now contributes to local authority Adoption and Fostering preparation courses, speaks to groups of Social Workers sharing from a ‘carers’ perspective and is part of a working group looking at re-imagining how 10+year-old’s are ‘looked after’ in the Care System.

Autumn Prayer Walk

We start our prayer week by walking the streets of Godmanchester and seeking God’s blessing on our community.

Autumn Prayer Week

Join us for prayer focused on the life and mission of GBC as well as our community and nation.

Autumn Prayer Week

Join us for a short lunchtime opportunity to worship and pray.

Lunchtime prayer may initially feel like an inconvenience during a very busy day. Yet there are many reasons it is worth our while to slow down and pray. By lunchtime, we are tempted to self-sufficiency, to see the world around us as too busy and too monotonous. It is precisely then that we need to stop and offer up the day again to the One who is Lord of all. So we’ll seek God’s presence and rest in the midst of a chaotic day.

Pray for the Nation

Come and pray for our nation

The Queen has said it is “difficult to escape a very sombre national mood” following “a succession of terrible tragedies” in recent weeks. Add to that the complicated government situation following last week’s General Election and the upcoming start of Brexit negotiation.

It’s time to lament and pray.

There will be an extra opportunity to do this on Sunday evening, 18 June, at 7pm at GBC Centre.

Do come if you can  or stay on after Songs of Praise.
