Peacemaking Sunday

Peacemaking Sunday - 18 September
When I needed a neighbour: refugees and sanctuary


The theme for this year’s resources is solidarity with refugees.  On 19 September the United Nations holds a summit on refugees and migrants, and on 20 September President Obama will host a meeting of world leaders on the global refugee crisis.  The focus of our prayers on Peacemaking Sunday will be for the success of these meetings and for our churches to continue to express concern for and act in solidarity with refugees.

The resources include prayers, reflections and suggested hymns.  There is also a link to four short video introductions on the theme of ‘What does the Bible say about 
refugees?’ produced by the Bible Society.
