At Welcome Church we want to see lives changed and communities impacted for good by God’s Grace in Action.
What is Welcome Works?
Welcome Church is involved in many different projects that aim to bring help to those in need. Welcome Works is the unifying banner that pulls all these together.
Why is Welcome Works important to us?
Caring for those in need was such a key part of Jesus’ time on earth. He said this:
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour”
Luke 4 v 18-19
At Welcome Church, we have found that Jesus’ love has led to us becoming passionate about the things he is passionate about – including reaching out and caring for people all around us.
The Bible tells us that our faith will naturally result in these kinds of works – we call that ‘Welcome Works’.
