Operation Refugee

Christian World Service —

Will you join CWS in this year’s Operation Refugee?

In Matthew 25, Jesus instructs us to “Welcome the Stranger”. On June 20, we are launching this year’s Operation Refugee: Pray, Walk, Eat. Refugees need our prayer and support in the places where they are sheltering. Sign up.

We have broadened the focus to assist the rising number of people who have fled their homes – at the last count around 84 million people. The need is greater than ever this year and each of us can make a difference, together. Together we can help vulnerable people in places like Afghanistan, Jordan, Ukraine, and Lebanon.

You could take up Operation Refugee as an individual challenge, but it might be easier to do it as a team or church. Challenge yourself to walk a distance to reflect how far refugees must travel to safety, organise a gathering with others or eat refugee rations for 5 days. Perhaps organise an event with a special collection if that works best for your church. Check out the details on our website. Call Murray on 0800 74 73 72 if you want to talk it over.

Refugee Sunday is on June 26. 

Worship Resources will be available on our website at the beginning of June. If you have a prayer or other resource you would like to share, please send them to Gillian.
