Bible Studies

Migration Bible Studies

 

In 2017, following the start of the new District theme Moving Stories, the Social Responsibility Commission and Authorised Ministries Commission created a Bible Study Course based on Migration Stories from the bible, so that Londoners might better understand the challenges faced by migrants. This resource is also to ensure that the lessons that can be learned from biblical Moving Stories are outlined, so that we as a church might become better examples of an inclusive and respectful community.

Corrymeela is delighted to make this material available as part of their desire to place the bible text right in the middle of the most difficult and profound issues in the public square. Corrymeela are passionately committed to reading the bible in this way, and it is a source of genuine wonder to them that this ancient text can play an active and stimulating role in informing and preparing us all for this future.

Domestic Organisations

There are many fantastic organisations, both domestically and internationally, doing amazing work for migrants and refugees. See below a list of just a few.
