CWS is zeroing in on World Refugee Day today to appeal for relief work funding in some of the world’s most pressing humanitarian situations.
In 2018 Anglican churches have the opportunity to mark Refugee Sunday Sunday 1 July, while Methodist and Presbyterian churches have Refugee Sunday on their calendars for 23 June.
Above is a CWS-produced worship resource for 1 July for Anglican churches, which includes an introduction with background on the theme, intercessory prayers and themed reflections on lectionary readings, plus links to more information and videos online.
- A Franciscan Prayer (video), from Krish Khandiah, which you can download.
- A video from We Welcome Refugees encouraging the church to respond
- 'We're only human' (video) — a song for Refugee Sunday
- World Vision have some great ideas for a Refugee Sunday service, with Photos and images to use, refugee children profile cards, small group resources, background information for speakers.
CWS is a member of ACT Alliance a global coalition of 146 churches and church-related organisations working together on humanitarian, development and advocacy in over 100 countries.
