The Refugee Crisis

As a church we are committed to the P.E.A.C.E response to the refugee crisis.

P - Pray, for those suffering and for governments and people to respond to their plight with compassion

E- Educate, find out what is really going on, not just what the papers say, and share this with others

A- Act, do something about what you find out!  Either by giving money or needed supplies or helping with housing refugees

C - Campaign, say something about this.  Write to an MP, sign a petition etc. and offer positive support to those with power.

E - Engage, stay aware of what is happening, how to be involved and keep the whole church family engaged.

You can find out more about this approach, including many helpful links to organisations who can offer accurate information, practical support and ways of campaigning and engaging, at:

When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself  

(Leviticus 19 vv 33-34)
 

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat.  I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.

(Matthew 25:35-36)
