Made for Goodness: A faithful response to the refugee crisis
What has caused the refugee crisis?
What does scripture have to say about movement and migration?
Does Brexit affect our responsibilities to protect refugees?
‘Made for Goodness’ from the Praxis team explores all of these questions, unpacking the origins, facts and realities of the humanitarian catastrophe that is affecting 65million people worldwide. Use it to discuss and stimulate debate about what more the UK needs to do to address this crisis.
We are also invited to write to the new Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, reminding her of the UK’s legal and ethical duty to protect and support refugees in light of Brexit. We want to see Ms Rudd make clear that the UK is committed to extending its resettlement targets to include non-Syrians, and to make special provisions for at least 3000 of an estimated 90,000 unaccompanied minors who find themselves vulnerable to trafficking and exploitation at the hands of criminal gangs.

Bearwood is a bustling, vibrant area, just over the border of Birmingham and within the borough of Sandwell, part of the famous ‘Black Country’. It is a meeting point for people of diverse ethnic backgrounds, life experiences and ages with rich histories, which are reflected in our church congregation.
The site is in two parts: a section of church pages about us, and wider information about Bearwood in our community pages. Please remember we are not responsible for content on other websites we link to.
BEARWOOD BAPTIST CHURCH aims to be friendly, welcoming and inclusive;
centred around the love of God revealed through Jesus.
OUR DESIRE is to express this through our worship of God and our service and care, for one another and for those in the community around us.
OUR INTENTION is to reflect the love and grace of God to all whom we meet.
WE SEEK to follow Jesus, and encourage others to follow Him too.
