God's House Advice & Support Center is a collaboration between Nacka Parish (the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Sweden), the Muslims Association in Nacka, and the Catholic Diocese of Stockholm. Most activities take place in Fisksätra Church.

The purpose of the activities is to give participants better conditions for integration and inclusion in Swedish society and thereby counteract social exclusion and segregation in Fisksätra.

The aim of the Advice & Support Center is to implement religion as a resource in its social work. Everyone is welcome here, regardless of who you are or where you come from. We view the work in the Advice & Support Center as a natural consequence of our religious beliefs - to live in love and care for our fellow human beings. 

Activities

The God's House Advice & Support Center offers counseling, language training, help with contacts with authorities, and opportunities to participate in a multitude of group activities.
