Church of England releases advice for parishes helping Ukrainian refugees

by Kelly Valencia

The Church of England has released a ‘toolkit’ of resources for parishes wanting to help refugees from Ukraine following the Russian invasion of the country.

The material provides practical advice on how churches can welcome Ukrainian refugees through giving, longer-term community sponsorship, prayer and advocacy.

There are also links to other sources of information including safeguarding.

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York, Most Rev Justin Welby and Most Rev Stephen Cottrell urged “all people of goodwill to join in prayer for the people of Ukraine and to work practically to support them in their hour of need.“

They continued: “We have been inspired by the warm response from churches and community groups.

“We hope that in this toolkit there will be some useful answers.

“In these days of uncertainty and fear, we pray that each of us might again turn to the Lord and receive God’s gift of peace, work for God’s justice, and know God’s reconciliation and love.”

A brief explanation of what is happening in Ukraine, information on how to support Ukrainians residing in the UK and theological resources for churches are also included in the toolkit.

You can access the toolkit here.
