LEARN ABOUT WELCOME NETWORK
OUR MISSION is to connect people together to show God’s love and power in their community.
We bring ideas about how church and mission can be done differently.
We help churches in a local area to connect together in worship and prayer, and to serve the community in collaborative projects.
We help people to understand better the different cultural backgrounds in their area, so that mission can be more effective. We offer cross-cultural workshops and training in how to create a culture of welcome. This can include feedback about your church/ group from Mystery visitors on our team.
THE VISION of Welcome Network is that every person will experience the love of God and know that they are accepted and belong, whatever their age, background, or culture. “So reach out and welcome one another to God’s glory.” (Romans 15:7 MSG)
Welcome Network is a charitable incorporated organisation (CIO) registered with the Charity Commisioners (Charities Registration number 1197685). It is affiliated to Churches in Communities International, a member of the Free Churches Group and Churches Together in England. We are also affiliated to the Evangelical Alliance.
