Welcome to join us in worship and fellowship online in Åkersberga church
As part of a project with the purpose to strengthen inclusion of refugees and asylum seekers as well as new citizens in the Christian community we will share three short Services in English on the web. In the first one we celebrate Advent Sunday, and then a short service for Christmas and New Years day in the same place.
The project is called Integration in Roslags kontrakt, and is a collaboration of six congregations in the northern part of Stockholm; Täby, Vallentuna, Vaxholm and Össeby församling, as well as Österåkers pastorat where Ljusterö-Kulla and Österåker-Östra Ryds församling are included. In our online services you will meet various members and employees from different congregations.
In the project we work together to create various activities that will bring people together. The Service in English is focused on creating a church community för people with the native language of English. For now the services will be published online, but we are set on inviting you to Sunday Service in English once a month in Tibble kyrka, as soon as we are able to meet in larger groups again.
In early 2021 we launch a plan for supporting lonely refugee children, now aged 18–21 years old, to find their way into employment. Actions are already in progress in several congregations, but we aim to make a joint effort to make sure our young friends are not being deported due to lack of work.
Other activities include church tours with a diversity approach and advice and support in contact with authorities, health care and schools. Another important aspect is taking part of, as well as sharing, knowledge about current migration policies and research.
