We have all been affected by the situation unfolding in Ukraine and as a church we are encouraging everyone to pray and give to help support all those affected.
When we see people fleeing war we naturally want to do something to help.
You may already be thinking of opening your home to a Ukrainian family.
Please carefully and prayerfully reflect on this. We hope that the following web sites will offer valuable information:
Homes for Ukraine – the government scheme https://homesforukraine.campaign.gov.uk
Ukraine Welcome – gives practical information to think about https://www.ukrainewelcome.org
Refugees at home – explains what it is like to host a refugee family https://www.ukrainewelcome.org
The Sanctuary Foundation, a Christian group headed up by Krish Kandiah, who are "supporting potential sponsors, assisting the government in the roll-out of the ‘Homes For Ukraine’ scheme, and resourcing individuals, community groups, churches, schools and businesses to step up to build this vital provision for Ukrainian refugees." https://www.sanctuaryfoundation.org.uk/#about
Our Romanian Congregation has close links with Biserica Maranata church located in Varfu Campului in the Codlea area of North East Romania, close to the Ukranian border. The church is supporting refugees who have crossed the border into Romania providing accommodation and food and is also sending supplies into Ukraine. A donation was sent from Union Baptist Church on 21st March to support this work.
See how our gifts have been making a difference:
We are supporting our mission partner BMS world mission who are working with churches in Ukraine as well as support for refugees through churches in Poland. Please consider giving to their BMS appeal for Ukraine
We will update this page when we are aware of other ways you can help.
