Loughborough: We Support..
As a church we believe in the principle of tithing, and so we give away 10% of our church income to support and resource various projects in Loughborough, the rest of the UK and across the world. The following projects are based in Loughborough.
BACA works with male unaccompanied forced migrants (asylum seekers) between the age of 16 and 18 years of age. They receive these young men, who are often scared, with few, if any, possessions and with little or no English, into their care from Social Services within a few days of their arrival in the UK. The purpose of Baca is to:
- Invest hope into forced migrants by welcoming them into our country and befriending them.
- Provide good quality accommodation, investing into their futures by helping them to adapt to the culture, integrate into society and teaching them foundational life skills.
- Raise awareness, understanding and empathy of forced migration in a global context.
Formed in 2002 by members of six Loughborough churches, Building Relations believes in investing in relationships in order to improve them, sustain them and prevent breakdown. From parenting classes to marriage mentoring and on-going support through The Marriage Course, Building Relationships exists to help people across Loughborough and beyond.
