Abstract [en]

This is a study of two Christian churches in the north of Sweden in a small village called Stöde. In Stöde there are about 3000 people and the village has been a refugee center since the year 2010. At first the new people had some difficulties to get closed to the people from Stöde. The two Christian churches started up some Swedish education and became a meeting point for the immigrants.


In my study I look fore if the two Christian churches can be a good way to integration. I also look if the two Christian churches will get some things out of the work with the immigrants. I have study the time from 2010 to 2015. In the study I interviewed one priest from the Swedish church and one pastor from the church of Euqumenia, Bethel. Both churches exist in Stöde. The immigrants come from different places and many are Muslims but it`s no problem because everyone is welcomed to both of the Christian churches. Perhaps is it so that the immigrants make the small village of Stöde alive again. And the both churches in Stöde has made a good work and tried to make the immigrants integrated in Sweden.
