Description

Princes Avenue Methodist Church in Hull began their open Doors project in 2000 to welcome asylum seekers and refugees. The church had found many were fleeing to the city from Africa and the Middle East, so they developed a Thursday afternoon drop in session to meet with them. They also provide pastoral support, by visiting clients at home and in hospital, as well as putting them in touch with relevant agencies and organisations. In addition, they help provide furniture, and household items/food, and help them with language barrier issues.

Rationale

'Whatever you did for the least, you did for me' - (Matthew 25:40 NIV paraphrased). Princes Avenue Methodist Church, have realised this call of Jesus to look after those most in need in society. They have sought to meet as many of the asylum seekers practical needs as they can.

Outcome

Asylum Seekers and refugees supported and cared for.
