The Bishop of Croydon (pictured top, right) said his Church and the Roman Catholic Church are "absolutely" on the same page concerning the struggles facing families being forced from the homes.
Rt Rev Jonathan Clark told Premier: "This is about a sense of our common calling as Christians.
"We belong to somewhere else, we're on the way to the heavenly city and it certainly isn't for us to be clinging on to our earthly inheritance and denying it to others in need."
Pope Francis launched on Wednesday a two-year initiative to counteract mounting anti-immigrant sentiment in the US, Europe and beyond.
The campaign encourages people to meet with migrants and hear their stories, rather than treat them as statistics clouded by negative stereotypes.
Bishop Jonathan continued: "There are places in which there are a hardening of attitudes which is making people feel less welcoming.
"Some people feel very anxious about their own communities and a sense they may be losing some of their own identity."
Bishop Jonathan has joined the Roman Catholic Bishop of Salford Rt Rev John Arnold (pictured top of page, left) in urging the UK Government to take a lead role in addressing the "global crisis" facing migrants.
They have urged ministers to help ensure displaced people are reunited with lost relatives, communities are helped to welcome refugees and the negative triggers of migration are addressed.
Bishop Jonathan added: "This is part of our calling to share the Good News that we've received.
"It's something that we can rejoice in and enjoy, and also be part of our witness to others, that this is something distinctive that makes us Christians, that we're able to reach out in welcome to others."
