Increasingly churches in the UK are reaching out to refugees, non-English speakers and victims of trauma on their own doorstep. Wycliffe has expertise in this field.
Find out about the MA in Language, Community and Development at Moorlands College, or the work of Bible Use Specialists who help people to deal with effects of trauma through using Scripture in their mother tongue.
