In 2015 news of the crisis in Syria began to reach the world, and in response Timberlea Baptist Church formed the BLT Refugee Committee in the fall of 2015 to begin the process of sponsoring a family in need.  In early 2016 we sponsored and resettled two refugee families in HRM.  We are committed to walking with these families as they start a new life in Nova Scotia, learn English, attend school, find work and develop a community here.  

We are currently in the process of bringing another family, hopefully to arrive Summer 2017, and a fourth family could also arrive later this year. Updates can be found on our BLT Facebook page, click here to connect.

We are committed to caring for our community one family at a time, and we have had the privilege of expanding our community to include families in various countries around the world.
