Have you recognised Refugee Sunday?

Refugee Sunday is designated as 7 July in the Anglican Tradition, and World Refugee day is 20 June.

This year we highlight the plight of refugees from Syria, some of whom were already Palestinian refugees.

CWS has put together a bundle of resources for your service, including a bulletin insert, powerpoint, and 4 page planning sheet that includes prayers, actions, bible verses, and news.

Disability Awareness Sunday

Disability Awareness Sunday

Disability Awareness Sunday gives us the opportunity to reflect on disability and our faith.  At General Synod – Te Hīnota Whānui in 2018, the three-Tikanga social justice network disability group moved that this Church work to increase our awareness of disability issues within and beyond our churches. There are lots of resources to help you plan a Sunday service, here is just a sample.

Take climate action at your next service

Take climate action at your next service

For two years, our movement has supported the campaign for a Zero Carbon Act (a law to keep New Zealand on track in reducing our carbon emissions and adapting to climate change). This bill has just passed its first reading and the Government is now inviting the public to have their say. The Diocese of Wellington has created some fantastic resources to use in your Sunday services, and equip people to understand and submit to the Zero Carbon Bill.
