Handsworth Welcome

Handsworth Welcome

Birmingham is home to a large number of Asylum Seekers and Refugees from all around the world. A number of years ago the Churches in Handsworth formed an organisation called Handsworth Welcome. As the name suggests, the aim of the organisation is to welcome, support and befriend Asylum Seekers and Refugees, many of who live in very difficult circumstances. Welcome meets in Elmwood URC Church on Fridays and provides meals, food parcels, support and friendship to a number of people.

As a church we support Welcome financially and a  number of people from the Crown serve on the team.
