Communities Together Durham Home What we do Latest News Keep in touch Our Staff Places of Welcome Loneliness is seen as a significant social problem in local communities. Places of Welcome is building on what many churches are already doing by providing a more intentional and open welcome to all. Places of Welcome are open the same time every week, provide refreshment free of charge, and the chance to make new friends. A simple move that will allow our churches and or other community buildings to be places where new realationships can develop. We are working with a number of churches and hope to build a network across the region.
